I wonder how many dollars will be left from my account?
If I want to take 1/6 of my money out of my bank account, how many dollars would be left?
Well, I know that of means multiply and we need to subtract how much your are taking out from the amount of money you have. Lets go to the calculator to figure this out.
You currently have $10,000 in your bank account. Since you want to take out 1/6 of your money we need to multiply $5,000 by 1/6. First we put 5,000 over a 1 so its a fraction like this: 5,000/1. Now that the numbers are both fractions, we want to set up the equation. The equation is: 5,000/1 X 1/6 Now we multiply. 5,000 X 1= 5,000 and 1 X 6= 6. So, the fraction is 5,000 over 6. When we simplify that we get $833.33. Lastly we need to subtract that number from the total amount of money you have.10,000 - 833.33= 9,166.67. In conclusion, you need to take out $9,166.67 out of your bank account.
If I need to take out 2/3 of my money, how much would be left?
To solve this problem, we need to take out 2/3 of your money, then subtract that from your total of money. REMEMBER: Of means multiply
