## Multiplying a denominate number by a whole number

Let's examine the repeated sum

$\underset{\text{3 times}}{\underbrace{\text{4 ft 9 in.}+\text{4 ft 9 in.}+\text{4 ft 9 in.}}}=\text{12 ft 27 in.}$

Recalling that multiplication is a description of repeated addition, by the distribu­tive property we have

$\begin{array}{cccc}\hfill 3\left(\text{4 ft 9 in}\text{.}\right)& =& 3\left(\text{4 ft}+\text{9 in.}\right)\hfill & \\ & =& 3\cdot \text{4 ft}+3\cdot \text{9 in.}\hfill & \\ & =& \text{12 ft}+\text{27 in.}\hfill & \text{Now, 27 in.}=\text{2 ft 3 in.}\hfill \\ & =& \text{12 ft}+\text{2 ft}+\text{3 in.}\hfill & \\ & =& \text{14 ft}+\text{3 in.}\hfill & \\ & =& \text{14 ft 3 in.}\hfill & \end{array}$

From these observations, we can suggest the following rule.

## Multiplying a denominate number by a whole number

To multiply a denominate number by a whole number, multiply the number part of each unit by the whole number and affix the unit to this product.

## Sample set c

Perform the following multiplications. Simplify if necessary.

$\begin{array}{ccc}\hfill 6\cdot \left(\text{2 ft 4 in.}\right)& =& 6\cdot \text{2 ft}+6\cdot \text{4 in.}\hfill \\ & =& \text{12 ft}+\text{24 in.}\hfill \end{array}$

Since $\text{3 ft}=\text{1 yd}$ and ,

$\begin{array}{ccc}\hfill \text{12 ft}+\text{24 in.}& =& \text{4 yd}+\text{2 ft}\hfill \\ & =& \text{4 yd 2 ft}\hfill \end{array}$

$\begin{array}{ccc}\hfill 8\cdot \left(\text{5 hr 21 min 55 sec}\right)& =& 8\cdot 5\text{hr}+8\cdot \text{21 min}+8\cdot \text{55 sec}\hfill \\ & =& \text{40 hr}+\text{168 min}+\text{440sec}\hfill \\ & =& \text{40 hr}+\text{168 min}+\text{7 min}+\text{20 sec}\hfill \\ & =& \text{40 hr}+\text{175 min}+\text{20 sec}\hfill \\ & =& \text{40 hr}+\text{2 hr}+\text{55 min}+\text{20 sec}\hfill \\ & =& \text{42 hr}+\text{55 min}+\text{20 sec}\hfill \\ & =& \text{24hr}+\text{18hr}+\text{55 min}+\text{20 sec}\hfill \\ & =& \text{1 da}+\text{18 hr}+\text{55 min}+\text{20 sec}\hfill \\ & =& \text{1 da 18 hr 55 min 20 sec}\hfill \end{array}$

## Practice set c

Perform the following multiplications. Simplify.

$2\cdot \left(\text{10 min}\right)$

20 min

$5\cdot \left(\text{3 qt}\right)$

$\text{15 qt}=\text{3 gal 3 qt}$

$4\cdot \left(5\text{ft 8 in}\text{.}\right)$

$\text{20 ft 32 in}\text{.}=\text{7 yd 1 ft 8 in}\text{.}$

$\text{10}\cdot \left(2\text{hr 15 min 40 sec}\right)$

$\text{20 hr 150 min 400 sec}=\text{22 hr 36 min 40 sec}$

## Dividing a denominate number by a whole number

To divide a denominate number by a whole number, divide the number part of each unit by the whole number beginning with the largest unit. Affix the unit to this quotient. Carry any remainder to the next unit.

## Sample set d

Perform the following divisions. Simplify if necessary.

$\left(\text{12 min 40 sec}\right)÷4$ Thus $\left(\text{12 min 40 sec}\right)÷4=3\text{min 10 sec}$

$\left(\text{5 yd 2 ft 9 in}\text{.}\right)÷3$ $\begin{array}{}\text{Convert to feet: 2 yd 2 ft}=\text{8 ft}\text{.}\\ \text{Convert to inches: 2 ft 9 in}\text{.}=\text{33 in}\text{.}\end{array}$

Thus $\left(\text{5 yd 2 ft 9 in}\text{.}\right)÷3=1\text{yd 2 ft 11 in}\text{.}$

## Practice set d

Perform the following divisions. Simplify if necessary.

$\left(\text{18 hr 36 min}\right)÷9$

2 hr 4 min

$\left(\text{34 hr 8 min}\text{.}\right)÷8$

4 hr 16 min

$\left(\text{13 yd 7 in}\text{.}\right)÷5$

2 yd 1 ft 11 in

$\left(\text{47 gal 2 qt 1 pt}\right)÷3$

15 gal 3 qt 1 pt
