- For example, if you have 6/7 divided by 2. you would start by changing 2 into a fraction by putting 2 over 1.
- Today we will be learning about how to divide fractions
- We now have 6/7 divided by 2/1. we would change the division into multiplication and then change 2/1 to 1/2.
- We now multiply 6/7 by 1/2. we get 6/14. now we simplify divide 6 and 14 by 2 to get our final answer of 3/7.
- As another Example, take 1/3 and 7/8,
- Change division to multiplication and change 7/8 to 8/7. We now have 1/3 x 8/7.
- Multiply the numerators to get 8 over something. Now multiply the denominators to get 21 our final answer is 8/21.
