You sure can. Give each child one apple and cut the last into 16 pieces - one for each child.If you don't want to cut the apple then no, you cannot equally divide 17 apples among 16 children.

Yes give them each 16/17 of an apple.

yes...i believe it is possible but very hard to figure out

Since 16 and 17 are relatively prime, i.e. they share no divisors other than 1, the only ways to divide 16 apples equally amongst 17 children is to either cut each apple into 17 pieces and give 16 pieces to each child, or cut a 17th of an apple out of each apple, give the cut apples to 16 of the children and give the 16 pieces to the 17th child.Another way to do it is to make apple sauce. From my wife. Gee, wish I had thought of that. :-)>

Cut each apple into fifths (creating 90 1/5 segments). Then, give each kid 9 segments.

That simply cannot be divided evenly. Some things will always have a remainder. This is one of those cases. There's nothing you can do about it.

The product of both.

You can divide it by 4 (4 being 16's square root). Or you can divide it by 8. Also you can divide it by 2 because all even numbers are divisible by 2.

kill one person

Each person gets 3/16.

Yes, by these numbers: 1, 2, 4, 8, 16, 32.

yes each kid gets 0.9411764

There are 16 ounces in a pound, so she's buying 28 ounces of apples. Divide $1.96 by 16, and the apples cost 0.1225/ounce. Multipley 0.1225*28, and the apples are going to cost $3.43

1 2 4 5 8 10 16 20 40 and 80.

Give each person one apple. Throw the extra one away.

Divide the 48 columns by any of these numbers: 2, 3, 4, 6, 8, 12, 16, 24.

Assuming that boys and girls are equally likely, it is 11/16.

16 divide by 1.000 equl = 16

Its 1/3 because 16 can go into 16 equally and 16 can go into 48 equally

there are 16 oz in a pound so u divide 1.96 by 16 and get 0.1225 which rounds to 0.12 you add that to 1.96 for a total of $2.08.

about 8 large apples-- 16 medium

16 divide by 368 = 0.043478260869565216

16 divide 48 = 0.3333333333333333

1632 divide by 16 = 102

If 3 plums = 2 apples, then 24 plums = 16 apples: 24 ÷ 3 = 8, then multiply 8 x 2 = 16.
