What divided by 1/4 equals 3/5?

Here we will show you how to calculate "what" in this sentence: "What divided by 1/4 equals 3/5?" We start by making this word problem into an algebraic equation where "what" is the variable "x".

x / (1/4) = (3/5)

To solve this equation, we want x alone on the left side of the equation so we start by multiplying (1/4) on both sides like this:

(x / (1/4)) • 1/4 = (3/5) • (1/4)

(x / (1/4)) • 1/4 leaves x and (3/5) • (1/4) is 3/20 which means we end up with this x = 3/20. Therefore, the answer to "What divided by 1/4 equals 3/5?" is as follows:

3/20

It is always good to double-check your math to make sure you did it right. When we entered 3/20 for x in this equation x / (1/4) = (3/5), we get the following true equation which means our math is correct.

(3/20) / (1/4) = (3/5)
