The mixed fraction `67 1/2` has to be divided by `1/3` . First convert `67 1/2` to the improper fraction form

`67 1/2 = 67.5 = 135/2`

`(135/2)/(1/3)`

= `(135*3)/2`

= `405/2`

The result of `67 1/2` divided by `1/3` is `405/2`

67 1/2 is the same as 67.5.

67.5 divided by 3 = 22.50, or 22 1/2.

67 1/2 divided by 1/3

To solve this problem you have to first change 67 1/2 into an improper fraction which is 134/2

134/2 ÷ 1/3 now multiply 134/2 with 3/1

By multiplying your equation should be

134/2 X 3/1 = 405/2

= 405 / 2  which is your answer

 Change this into a mixed number first
135/2 / 1/3 
Since you are dividing flip it so it can multiply
135/2 x 3
 
135 x 3/ 2 x 1
 
202.5
