Can you divided 15 by a mix number?

You can divide any number by a mixed number, though for ease of doing so, you will be converting the mixed number into decimal form. Let us say you wish to divide 15 by the mixed number 1 and 1/4. You convert that mixed number to decimal form - 1.25. You then enter 15 on your calculator, and divide that by 1.25, and get 12. (the way you get .25 from 1/4 is to divide the top number by the bottom number on your calculator)
