Indicate all such operations.

A. Multiply the incorrect quotient by 1000

B. Divide the incorrect quotient by 1000

C. Multiply the incorrect quotient by 10

D. Divide the incorrect quotient by 10

E. Multiply the incorrect quotient by 0.01

F. Divide the incorrect quotient by 0.01

G. Multiply the incorrect quotient by 0.001

H. Divide the incorrect quotient by 0.001

Indicate all such operations.

A. Multiply the incorrect quotient by 1000

B. Divide the incorrect quotient by 1000

C. Multiply the incorrect quotient by 10

D. Divide the incorrect quotient by 10

E. Multiply the incorrect quotient by 0.01

F. Divide the incorrect quotient by 0.01

G. Multiply the incorrect quotient by 0.001

H. Divide the incorrect quotient by 0.001

Let \(x \)be the number to be divided by 14.236

Instead of writing\( x/14.236\), Steve wrote \(x/14236\).

The incorrect number is 1000 times larger than the correct number.

To correct the mistake, we have to reverse this operation i.e., divide the number (in the denominator) by 1000 or multiply the denominator by\( 1/1000\) which is equal to 0.001.

\(x/(14236*0.001)\)

Hence option H only.
