5600/200 can be simplified to 56/2, by cancelling out both of the zeros on the top and the bottom of fraction. 56/2 can then be taken as 28, as 28 goes into 56 twice.

Hi, the answer to your question is 28. The way you can solve this question is by cancelling the 2 0s on the end of 5600 and 200 so that you are left with 56/2, which can then be solved using knowledge for your 2 timed table.

5600/200=56/2=28 you divide both the top and bottom of the fraction by 100 and then half 56 which is half 50 plus half 6 which is 25 plus 3 which is 28

5600/200 = 28 Hope this helps

Due to both numbers having 0's on the end, we can take away both 0's on each of them. Therefore we have 56/2 which we can do easily by just halting the number to get 28.

5600/200 (divide both by 2)

2800/100 (divide both by 100)

28/1 = 28

The answer is 28 because 56 divided by 2 will give us 28 and because they both are in their hundreds- both zeros will cancel out.

The answer is 28, it is also helpful to simplify the terms before doing the division for example both terms are clearly divisible by 100 (i.e. taking two zeros off). this leaves 56/2 which is much easier to work with.

When looking at a question like this, first think about how many 100s there are in each part.

5600 is 56 hundreds

200 is 2 hundreds.

So this means that you can 'ignore' the hundreds, and instead focus on the 56/2.

56 is close to 60, and 60/2 is 30.

so count back 2 from 60 to get 58, and another 2 from 58 is 56

So 30 - 2 = 28.

Thus, 5600/200 = 56/2 = 28
