Express `97/9` as a mixed number.

Divide  `97-:9.`

9 goes into 97 10 times.  This is your whole number.

`9*10 = 90`

When we subtract from 97, this leaves 7 left over.  This is your numerator.

And 9, our divisor, the denominator of the fraction, is the denominator of the mixed number.

The solution of `97/9`  as a mixed number is `10 7/9.`

QUESTION:-

Express 97/9 as a mixed or whole number?

SOLUTION:-

In this problem, it is asked to express the given fraction in the form of whole number or mixed number. The given fraction is;

`97/9`

First you have to see if 97 comes in the table of 9, if no then see that which is the number closest to 97 that comes in the table of 9 and can be perfectly divided by 9. Like {9 x 10 = 90} This is the closest number to 97 that can be divided by 9. Now {97-90=7} 7 digits are left that cannot be divided by 9 to get a whole number. Therefore this will be the remaining fraction. Hence;

`=10(7/9)`

Hence the mixed number of `97/9`  is `10(7/9)`
