# What is 1 over 2 divided by 1 over 6?

1/2 / 1/6 =1/2*6/1 =6/2 =3 Hope this helps, atom_computer To explain why this is true: When you divide fractions, you can take the fraction in the denominator (the nu…mber on the bottom), in this case, 1/6 and flip it around to make it 6/1. Then multiple 6/1 by the numerator (the number on top), in this case, 1/2. That's how we got "=1/2*6/1" above. With multiplication, multiply both numerators for the numerator in the answer, and multiply the denominators for the denominator in the answer. That's how we got 6/3 which reduces to 2. When you are not sure, take something you know, like 6/3. You know that's 2 right? (In fraction form this is 6/1 / 3/1) When you apply the rules above you get 6/1 * 1/3. Multiply numerators, you get 6 on top, multiply denominators, you get 3 on the bottom, for 6/3 or 2. Always understand how you get your answers. A lot of practice will help. Good Luck.

# How can you tell that 479 divided by 6 will have 2-digit quotient?

479 is greater than 60 and less than 600. 6 X 10 = 60 and 6 x 100 = 600. Thus, the number of "6"'s that will divide into 479 has to be somewhere between 10 and 100...which lea…ves only 2-digit numbers. (MORE)

# What is 6 divided by 2 brackets 1 plus 2 close brackets?

6/2(1+2)=? The answer is 9. The BIDMAS or PEMDAS Rule says that brackets must be done first. 1) (1+2)=3 Then you do multiplication or division first since it is the next st…ep in the rules that apply to this equation. Many are confused as to which one they are supposed to do because they give a different answer. However, all equations are solved by left-to-right if you must choose from times and divide, or plus and minus. 2)6/2=3 Now the equation is: 3(3) This means multiply. 3)3*3=9 The equation is solved.

# Tips for Dividing Perennials

Dividing your perennials can mean the difference when it comes to regrowing your crops and gardens. A lot of people have difficulties when it comes to dividing plants; never c…ertain when to divide, how much to divide, or even why to divide. Dividing your perennials and proper preparation will reward you with stronger, healthier crops when the next season comes. Even some of the oldest plants can continue to flourish with division.Waiting until your plants are dying or sick will greatly reduce any chance of regrowth, sometimes even completely eliminating the option of dividing them. It is often in your best interest to divide when the plant is at its peak, just as you're beginning to see some of the warning signs of aging.It is often advised against dividing plants in bloom. It is known that they are more sensitive and require more care when in this state. Applying a little bit of common sense and being careful will help reduce the stress in the event that you have no other choice but to divide plants in bloom.The drip line is where water drips from the plant's leaves at its furthest. This is typically the best spot to start digging in order to reduce as much damage to the roots as possible. Usually, the plant's roots will only grow this far, and beginning here will eliminate as much stress on the root system as possible.Take note of what types of roots your plant has; clumps or offsets, surface roots, taproots, woody roots, or underground roots. These will often be your guide in how to divide and replant your plants in the next season.Allow your perennials to grow and flourish by giving them ample room between other plants. Use their roots to tell you how much room they need; no less than the outer edges of the root system should suffice, but allow for more in the event your plants may grow larger.It is generally safe to divide anytime. However, in order to receive the optimum use of your time versus return, divide when the ground is warmer than the air. By doing this, you will enable the newly divided roots to grow and regain a solid foundation while the rest of the plant stays low and safe.Roots will survive easier before being replanted if they are kept in 50 percent humidity at 50 degrees Fahrenheit. Wrapping the roots in newspaper and keeping them in a dark place, while occasionally sprinkling water on them (careful not to soak) will help slow down any drying and preserve them for much longer.Rejuvenating the soil where you intend to plant with organic matter will create a solid foundation and provide more nutrients for replanting. Your perennials will take hold quicker and regrow faster, provided they were reintroduced to a healthy environment.The plants that either maintained or grew the most roots will most likely grow, sometimes exponentially. Over-crowding of plants can severely reduce their odds of survival and prospering. Starting with the largest sections and working down will foster growth of the smaller batches and provide longer blooms for all the plants.You should only keep the healthiest parts of your plants. Take note of any discoloration, pest problems, or eroded roots, as these are fair signs that a root system or plant is no-good. Not only will these not likely survive, but they very well may end up hurting the plants around them, too.Perennials require special care when compared to other crops, as they are sensitive and delicate. However, they can be much less hassle with dividing. By following these simple tips and learning about your specific plants, primarily their roots, you can help ensure safer and more prolific gardening. Your crops will likely flourish and live vigorously with healthy dividing techniques.Learn as much as you can about your specific gardens or crops. Perennials are not all created equal, but can often require very specific tools and timing for dividing. For instance, blanket flowers are best divided in summer or fall and done by hand, while Monkshood are best divided in summer with a spade or pitchfork. Some simply should not be divided. (MORE)

# Video Tutorials on How to Divide and Replant Irises

Irises are hardy, perennial plants that bloom in the spring and have abundant green foliage. The flower stems are usually a foot tall or taller. Irises are used as accent plan…ts in perennial gardens and as filler. They grow from rhizomes, which are underground plant stems that send roots downward and plant shoots upward. The rhizomes eventually form a clump. When the iris gets to this stage, it no longer blooms as well. To increase the health and bloom capacity of the plant, dig up the rhizome clump, split it into several rhizomes and replant them. Several videos show you how to divide iris rhizomes and replant them.Learn how to divide and plant irises correctly in a video from Echo Iris Garden. It is especially helpful for first-time iris-growers. Browse the rest of the site to see a list of named iris varieties.[Echo Iris Garden: How to Divide and Plant Irises](http://www.echoiris.com/content/how-divide-and-plant-irises)Irises become compact after three to four years and don't have enough room to grow, so they don't bloom nicely anymore. It is best to dig and replant irises in late July or early August, several weeks before the first freeze. Additional videos from Pleasant Valley Iris Farm show you how to cross two different iris varieties to form a hybrid, and how to plant iris seeds.[Pleasant Valley Iris Farm: How to Separate Irises](http://www.irisfarmer.com/iriscarevideos.html)Indiana University presents this video on how to divide iris plants and care for them. Each rhizome blooms once and then produces another rhizome. Because of this, it is important to continue to separate the rhizomes and let them start the process over again. Rhizomes need to be planted shallowly. Because irises only bloom in spring, it is best to plant them based on the foliage you want to see and not just for the blooms.[Planter's Place: How to Divide Iris Plants](http://www.plantersplace.com/resources/video_detail/IN4__gmp_3I)Iris rhizomes can be left out of the ground for a few days if needed, but it is best to plant them as soon as possible. No special tools are needed to divide irises - the rhizomes often break apart on their own or very easily with your hands. When dividing rhizomes, discard the one that has already bloomed - it won't bloom again.[WonderHowTo: How to Divide and Re-plant Irises](http://gardening-guide.wonderhowto.com/how-to/divide-and-re-plant-irises-339563/)The Siberian iris is a different type than the more common bearded iris.

# Dividing Iris Bulbs for Best Results

Bearded iris plants are one of the easiest perennials to grow. So easy, in fact, that they increase year after year. To maintain a healthy iris bed, divide the bulbs when your… patch starts to get overly thick, about every three to four years. Follow these tips for iris dividing.Use a spade to remove the entire clump of bulbs. Rinse the soil off of the rhizomes with a garden hose, and remove any dead flower stalks. Removing the entire clump allows you to inspect the bulbs for rot or decay before replanting.Cut the attached rhizomes apart with a sharp knife, rather than breaking them apart. This leaves a cleaner wound which heals over faster. Cut out any soft or mushy bulbs and discard.Lay the freshly-separated rhizomes in a cool shady area for a couple of days until the cut wound dries over enough. Planting right away encourages rot where the bulbs were separated.The best time to divide your iris bulbs is about six to eight weeks after blooming. This allows you to enjoy the blooms of the season. Once replanted, the bulbs need a couple of months to take hold before winter.Iris bulbs need to be planted just under the surface of the soil. Planting too deeply discourages blooms. Plant 12 to 24 inches apart. Using a triangular pattern creates a nice clump.While mulch is necessary for a variety of plants, irises need ventilation and prefer to dry out a bit. Mulching directly over the rhizomes keeps moisture in and leads to bacterial soft rot.Irises are a long-time favorite in the American garden. Proper iris dividing promotes healthy, well-ventilated bulbs that provide years of color.Trimming the green leaves of divided irises before replanting promotes root establishment. Clip the green blades to a length of about 5 inches to allow the plant to focus its energy on root production rather than supporting the foliage. (MORE)

# Great Gardening: Dividing Irises With Ease

An iris grows from a rhizome- an underground stem that sends out roots and shoots below the surface and plant stalks and flowers upward through the ground. As an iris plant ge…ts older, it produces more rhizomes, which produces more leaves and flowers. Over time, the old rhizomes die off, decreasing the number of blooms. By dividing irises and replanting the rhizomes every three to five years, you maximize the beauty of these perennials.A rhizome is not a single, large bulb. Instead, it looks like a clump. Loosen the ground around the base of the iris with a garden fork or spade. When the rhizome is loosened sufficiently, remove it from the ground.Shake the plant gently to remove loose clumps of dirt. Wash them off with a hose until see the rhizomes clearly. Inspect them for any iris borers, which are fat, white worms. If you see any, remove them so that they do not cause further damage.Prepare a 10 percent bleach solution with nine parts water and one part bleach. Clean your garden shears with this solution, or select a clean kitchen knife. Make sure the knife or shears is sharp.Using the shears or knife, cut the rhizomes growing on the outside of the clump to separate them from the one in the middle. Most people throw away the old "mother" because it does not re-bloom, but it has the potential to grow additional rhizomes if replanted, so feel free to save it. Use the bleach/water solution to disinfect your cutting tool in between each cut to avoid spreading diseases.Go through the rhizomes, and inspect them closely. If any feel soft or mushy, discard them. Look for other signs of disease, such as discolored rhizomes, rhizomes that lack roots or rhizomes that are small and underdeveloped.Cut off the dead roots, and trim healthy roots to about 2 inches in length. Cut the plant stalk that remains above the ground to about 8 to 12 inches in length. Remove any brown leaves. After all of the rhizomes are cleaned and separated, place them in a dry, shaded area for at least a few days to allow the cut wounds to "scab" before replanting.Choose an area that receives at least six hours of direct sunlight a day, and prepare the soil by making sure it is fertilized and well-drained. Space the plants 12 to 18 inches apart. Dig a hole to allow that allows the rhizome to rest just below the surface of the ground while allowing the roots to fan out a bit. Leave a small bit of the top of the rhizome visible above the ground.Water well after planting the rhizomes. Continue providing 1 inch of water weekly until you see new growth.Dividing irises every few years results in healthy, beautiful plants with bountiful blooms. Give extra rhizomes to your friends, family or neighbors while you have them out of the ground to make both the recipients and the flowers happy.Dividing irises keeps soft rot and damage from pests to a minimum. Inspect the soil around your irises, and watch for soil deterioration. Remove soil that contains rot before replanting divided rhizomes. (MORE)
