What is the answer as a mixed number?

Is this question correct? I get

Treat as a ratio

65 pages for 8 equal sections.

Write the ratio in the format of a fraction.

But we need the number of pages for 1 section. So we need to change the 8 into 1.

For multiply or divide in ratios expressed as fractions what we do to the bottom we do to the top.

Divide top and bottom by 8 giving

Suppose each section was to start on a new page

This is a lot more than the given count of 65????

NO one will produce a brochure of 65 pages - it is simply not practical nor cost-effective.

In practical terms, no one would produce a brochure of 65 pages. A page has two sides, but as brochures are printed in booklet format, there are always 4 "pages" to a sheet of paper. Therefore any brochure has to be a multiple of 4 to avoid wasting, No one would produce a brochure with 3 totally blank page.

Also, even if there are only a few lines at the top of the last page, there will still be whole sheet of paper used.

To find out how many pages will be in each section, divide the total number of pages (65) by the number of sections (8).

65 ÷ 8 = 8 with a remainder of 1.

So, each section will have 8 pages, with 1 page left over.
