What is 16/10 as a mixed number in simplest form. I don’t get it?

16/10 as a mixed number is 1 6/10.

I got this answer by finding out how many times 10 goes into 16, evenly. I got 1, and put that as a whole number. 6 was leftover, so I put that for the numerator. Then, I kept the denominator same, which was 10.


1 6/10 simplified is 1 3/5.

I got this answer by finding out what number goes both into 10 and 6, evenly. The GCF, or Greatest Common Factor, was 2. I divided 6 by 2 and 10 by 2. I then got 3 and 5.
3 was the numerator, and 5 is the denominator.

Again, 16/10 in simplest form is 1 3/5.
