I thought that 1r4 could be written as 1.4, my bad
but how can it also be 1.8? Why does my calculator say 1.8?
i think i understand... so the remainder of 4 needs to be divided by 5 also which turns into 0.8
Yeah. Having a remainder of 4 means "I tried to divide 9 by 5. I discovered that 5 goes into 9 at least once (5*1 = 5), with a remainder of 4."
Now, to finish the job, you have to also divide the remainder by 5, hence it becomes 4/5.
In fraction form:
[tex] \dfrac{9}{5} = \dfrac{(5+4)}{5} = \dfrac{5}{5} + \dfrac{4}{5} = 1 + \dfrac{4}{5} [/tex]
Makes sense?
