6/.96 = 6.25

Therefore:

N = .96 roung to 1 approx

Hope this helped

• First step convert 6 and one fourth to decimal, ie, 6.25.

Now you have 6/N = 6.25/100

You then cross multiply. Ie, 6x100 = 6.25xN

That equates to 600 = 6.25N.

Now divide 600 by 6.25 to get a value for N. Therefore N = 600/6.25

And N is equal to 96.

• 6 and 1/4 is the same as 25/4. 25/4 divided by 100 is like saying (25/4) x (1/100), which is 1/16. 6/N = 1/16. Cross multiply to get 16 x 6 = N x1.

• 96

• cross multiply. then u get 6 1/4N = 600 you divide 600 by 6 1/4 which equals 48.

• 6/n = 6.25/100 cross multiply 6.25n = 600 divide each side by 6.25

My comp calc said 96 so n = 96

6/n = 6.25/100

times 4 to get rid of the decimal in the numerator

24/4n = 25/400

9600 = 250n

n = 38.4

• 6/N = 25/6 / 100

100x6 = 25/6 x N

600 = 25/6 (N)

600 (6 / 25) = N

144 = N

• put it on paper:

6/n = 6.25/100

cross multiply

6*100 = 6.25n

n= 600/6.25 = 96

• n = 96 because

6.25/100 = 0.0625, so 6/n = 0.0625

Invert:

n/6 = 1/0.0625

So 6 x 1/0.0625 = n = 96.
