# By what number should - 33 / 8 be divided to get - 11 / 2?

Let – 33 / 8 be divided by x to get – 11 / 2.
$$\frac{-33}{8} \div \mathbf{x}=\frac{-11}{2} \\ \Rightarrow \mathbf{x}=\frac{-33}{8} \div \frac{-11}{2} \\ \Rightarrow \mathrm{x}=\frac{-33}{8} \times \frac{2}{-11} \\ \Rightarrow \mathrm{x}=\frac{-33 \times 2}{8 \times-11} \\ \Rightarrow \mathrm{x}=\frac{-66}{-88}=\frac{-66 \times-1}{-88 \times-1}=\frac{66}{88} \\ \Rightarrow \mathrm{x}=\frac{66}{88}=\frac{66 \div 22}{88 \div 22}=\frac{3}{4}$$
