    Answer:

    32 Pancakes

    Step-By-Step: (Assuming the thickness of the pancake(3/8) is measured in inches)

    The entire pile is 12 inches tall, so how many pancakes(3/8 in) can go into 12 inches?

    # of Pancakes= 12 / (3/8)

    Use Change, Flip, Switch, & Go:

    1. Change all numbers into improper fractions. (12 becomes 12/1)
    2. Flip the 3/8 to 8/3
    3. Switch the division sign to multiplication
    4. Go solve

    Short cut:As seen in the picture below, you can simplify the equation because 12 and 3 have a greatest common factor of 4. So, by dividing both by 4, we can use 4 and 1. (This method only works for multiplying fractions and only if the numbers are diagonally accross from each other)

    Answer:

    32

    Step-by-step explanation:

    12 / (3/8) = 12 * 8/3 =

    so basically if you divide a fraction you can switch the numerator and the denominator and then multiply 12 * 8/3 instead of 12 / 3/8

    then 12 * 8/3 = 96 / 3 = 32 so ye
