Cavell,
I expect that you question should be
What number is 8/11 of 900?
Ask yourself
What number is 1/2 of 900?
The answer is 450, but how did you get that answer? I expect that you divided 900 by 2 or, in other words, you multiplied 900 by 1/2. What about
What number is 2/9 of 900?
Well, oneninth of 900 is 100 so twoninths is 200. Again you could find this by multiplying 900 by 2/9. So what about
What number is 8/11 of 900?
Multiplying 900 by 8/11 I get
900 8/11 = 7200/11 or in decimal form 654.5454...
