P Pankaj Sanodiya

As we know, dividing by a number is equivalent to multiplying by the reciprocal of that number. So

(i) 35.7 ÷ 3

$35.7\div3=\frac{357}{10}\div3=\frac{357}{10}\times\frac{1}{3}=\frac{129}{10}=12.9$

(ii) 25.5 ÷ 3

$25.5\div3=\frac{255}{10}\div3=\frac{255}{10}\times\frac{1}{3}=\frac{85}{10}=8.5$
