My son had a math paper with some fractions on it. This was one of them I tried to help him but I wasn’t sure how to help him.

“of” means multiply
therefore
(5/6) x 24 = 5(24)/6
Answer is 20

1/6 of 24= 4 4 times 5 = 20 so 5/6 of 24 = 20

an easy way is to just type it into the calculator (5/6)24.
here is another way: first, you can find 1/6 of 24 by multiplying 24 by 1/6 which ends up being 4. since the fraction is 5/6 (not just 1/6) you multiply 4 and 5 to get 20.
hopefully that wasnt too confusing! 😀

You say 5/6 X 24/1 and cross multiply.
The answer is 20.

20.
In plain words rather than an equation:
When you divide 24 by 6, you get 4. (6 x 4 = 24)
5 fours is 20. (5 x 4 = 20)

“of” means multiplication
so
5/6 *24 = (5*24)/ 6 = 120/6 = 20

5/6 of 24 is 20
do 5/6 x 24 ! =)

You just multiply (5/6) * 24.
So (5*24)/6 = (120)/6 = 20

multiply them for your answer:
(5/6) x (24) = 120/6 = 20
or you can just think of it as what times 6 makes 24? its 4, therefore 6 x 4 = 24, 5 x 4 = 20

20.
5 over 6 times 24 is 24 times 5 divided by 6, which is 120 divided by 6, so you reduce that to 20.
