Evaluate 10 divided by one-half.
00:00:06.420 --> 00:00:10.720
To divide 10 by one-half, there is something that we will need to do first.
00:00:12.670 --> 00:00:17.150
We need to multiply the dividend by the reciprocal of the divisor.
00:00:19.330 --> 00:00:26.760
Just that we remember, the 10 is the dividend and the one-half is the divisor in this problem.
00:00:28.590 --> 00:00:32.800
And we’re going to multiply, so change our division to multiplication.
00:00:34.160 --> 00:00:37.240
Multiply the dividend, so I’ll bring down our 10.
00:00:37.240 --> 00:00:39.410
Our dividend has not changed.
00:00:41.580 --> 00:00:45.320
But now, we need the reciprocal of the divisor.
00:00:45.540 --> 00:00:53.460
And our divisor is one-half, which means the reciprocal is two over one or two.
00:00:55.050 --> 00:00:59.320
Now that we’ve changed our problem, we can multiply 10 times two.
00:01:01.960 --> 00:01:03.230
That equals 20.
00:01:04.910 --> 00:01:11.890
10 divided by one-half is 10 times two, and they equal 20.
