Option 1 Solution:

1) Change 72 1/4 to improper fraction, then divide by 1/8

289/4 ÷ 1/8 = N

289/4 × 8/1 = N (when dividing by a fraction, change the divisor to its reciprocal,

then proceed to multiplication)

N =** 578. There are 578 eighths (578/8) in 72 1/4.**

Option 2 solution:

1) Change the dividend and divisor to decimal form.

72 1/4 = 72.25

1/8 = 0.125

Divide:

72.25 ÷ 0.125 =** 578. There are 578 eighths (578/8) in 72 1/4.**
