# Express 8 divided by 3 as a fraction.

To write a fraction in its simplest form means the numerator and denominator can no longer be divided by the same whole number exactly or evenly.

## Answer: The value of 8 divided by 3 as a fraction is 2 ⅔.

Let us write 8 divided by 3 as a fraction.

**Explanation:**

We can write 8 divided by 3 as 8/3.

As 8 / 3 is an improper fraction so when we divide 8 by 3 we'll get 2 as quotient and 2 as remainder.

To convert an improper fraction into a mixed fraction, we take quotient 2 as a whole part and in the fractional part remainder 2 as the numerator, and divisor 3 as the denominator.

The GCF of 2 and 3 is 1. So, divide both the numerator and denominator by the GCF to simplify the fraction and convert it to a mixed fraction.

⇒ 8/3 = 2 ⅔

### Thus, 8 divided by 3 as a fraction in simplest form is 2 ⅔.
