I hope 7 381/5 = 7\(frac381/5\)

Since 7 is quotient, 381 is reminder, and 5 is divisor, the reminder should be 1.

I too get 1, however OA is 2. Not sure if thats a mistake.

Anyways, are you aware of an easier way to solve this problem other than multiplying and dividing?

7 381/5 - (read it as a mixed fraction): I guess I did not get it clearly. can you define what exactly it is?

7 381/5 looks very weird. still it is 416/5, the remainder is 1

Again, I'm not sure how the answer is not 1. Between this and the symbols post, i think you might have a problematic problem/answer set on your hand :?
