This is my little brothers math problem he had for homework last night. How do you do this?
what is the answer to 53/7:7
It's not quite clear how you've stated this, but I believe it's a ratio problem that looks like the following:
53/7 : 7
If this is the case, you want to get rid of the fraction on the left side. To do this, simply multiply both sides by 7:
7 * (53/7) : (7) * 7
53 : 49 , and this is your answer since it cannot be simplified further.
