Algebra: A Combined Approach (4th Edition)

$\frac{29}{6}$ or $29\div6$ Set the equation up as if you were doing long division 1) 29 divided by 6 = 4 remainder 5 2) Bring down a 0 making 5 into 50 3) 50 divided by 6 = 8 remainder 2 4) Bring down a 0 making 2 into 20 5) 20 divided by 6 = 3 remainder 2 6) Now that you see there is a repeating 2, you do not have to repeat the steps. The result will always be 3 remainder 2 7) Taking the whole numbers you have: 483 *because you started at 29 and not 2 your answer starts in the ones places and everything else is a decimal Your answer is: 4.83
