There are seven 7ths in one. So divide 25 by 7 to give 3 remainder 4. The answer is 3 and 4/7

This is a great question. Firstly, we need to work out how many 7s fit into 25. So we know that 7x3 is 21 and if we do 25 divided by 7 we get 3 remainder 4 (25-21=4). So we have the whole number which is 3 and that is the whole number in our mixed fraction. Then we have remainder 4 which we will write as the numerator after the 3 and we will put that over 7 as that was the original denominator. So the answer is 3 4/7.

I am excited to share my knowledge with you!! GCSE Maths and science.

Divide the numerator by the denominator

25 divided by 7 = 3 remainder 4

As 25 only goes into the 7 times table 3 times (7 x 3 = 21)

25- 21 = 4 (this is where the remainder 4 comes from)

= 3 4/7

the denominator stays the same (7).

Answer = 3 4/7
