dividing fractions, just multiply the dividend by the divisor’s reciprocal. For example to find the reciprocal of a fraction, interchange the numerator and the denominator. The reciprocal of 3/5 is 5/3, the division takes the form of:
a/b ÷ c/d = a/b × d/c or (dividend) ÷ (divisor)
Divide, simplify, if necessary.
4/9 ÷ 2/12
Rewrite the problem by writing the reciprocal of the divisor, and changing the division sign to a multiplication sign
4/9 × 12/2
After cancellation or simplifying the answer is
8/3 = 2 2/3
The answer is 2 2/3, which is the simplified fraction in the simplest form.
Divide 2/3 ÷ 4/9
2/3 x 9/4
After cancellation or simplification the fraction is :
