# Express 8 divided by 5 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 5 as a fraction is 1⅗.

Let us write 8 divided by 5 as a fraction

**Explanation:**

We can write 8 divided by 5 as 8/5.

As 8/5 is an improper fraction so when we divide the 8 by 5 we'll get 1 as quotient and 3 as remainder.

To convert an improper fraction into a mixed fraction, we take quotient 1 as a whole part and in the fractional part remainder 1 as the numerator, and divisor 5 as the denominator.

The GCF of 1 and 5 is 1. So, divide both the numerator and denominator by the GCF to simplify the fraction and convert it to a mixed fraction.

⇒ 8/5 = 1⅗
