Question:-

3 divided by 2

Solution:-

This is a problem based on division. Division simply means dividing the numerator digit by denominator digit to get a digit which tells us the number of times the numerator digit can be divided into parts based on the denominator digit.

Therefore when we have to tell the number of times 2 comes in the table of 3;

`3/2=1 1/2`

`or`

`1.5`

3/2 is what this would look like

you can get this by splitting 3 in half (the number will include a ecimal)

you will get 1.5 your answer. 

now to vrify multiply it by 2 or add the number to itself 2 times to get 3 does it work?

1.5+1.5= 3

3/2 is 1.5 because 1.5+1.5 would add up to 3

       1.5

2 |  3                      3-2=1

    -2   

---------------

   | 10                       10-2x5=0

    -10

      0

Thus when 3 divided by 2, quotient=1.5 and remainder=0.
