Multiplying a denominate number by a whole number

Let's examine the repeated sum

4 ft 9 in. + 4 ft 9 in. + 4 ft 9 in. 3 times = 12 ft 27 in.

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

3 ( 4 ft 9 in . ) = 3 ( 4 ft + 9 in. ) = 3 4 ft + 3 9 in. = 12 ft + 27 in. Now, 27 in. = 2 ft 3 in. = 12 ft + 2 ft + 3 in. = 14 ft + 3 in. = 14 ft 3 in.

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.

6 2 ft 4 in. = 6 2 ft + 6 4 in. = 12 ft + 24 in.

Since 3 ft = 1 yd size 12{"3 ft"=" 1 yd"} {} and 12   in . = 1 ft size 12{"12"" in" "." ="1 ft"} {} ,

12 ft + 24 in. = 4 yd + 2 ft = 4 yd 2 ft

Dividing a denominate number by a whole number

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.

12 min 40 sec ÷ 4 size 12{ left ("12 min 40 sec" right ) div 4} {}

Long division. 12 min and 40 sec divided by 4. 4 goes into 12 minutes 3 times, making a quotient of 3 minutes with no remainder. 4 goes into 40 seconds 10 times, making a quotient of 10 seconds with no remainder. The total quotient is 3 min 10 sec.

Thus 12 min 40 sec ÷ 4 = 3 min 10 sec size 12{ left ("12 min 40 sec" right ) div 4=3" min 10 sec"} {}

5 yd 2 ft 9 in . ÷ 3 size 12{ left ("5 yd 2 ft 9 in" "." right ) div 3} {}

Long division. 5 yd 2 ft 9 in divided by 3. 3 goes into 5 yards one time with a remainder of 2 yards. Bring down the 2 feet. 2 yards and 2 feet is eight feet. 3 goes into eight feet twice with a remainder of 2 feet. Bring down the 9 inches. 2 feet 9 in is equal to 22 inches. 3 goes into 33 inches exactly 11 times. The total quotient is 1 yd 2 ft 11 in. Convert to feet: 2 yd 2 ft = 8 ft . Convert to inches: 2 ft 9 in . = 33 in .

Thus 5 yd 2 ft 9 in . ÷ 3 = 1 yd 2 ft 11 in . size 12{ left ("5 yd 2 ft 9 in" "." right ) div 3=1" yd 2 ft 11 in" "." } {}
