How to Divide Fractions

Frazer says "To divide a fraction by another fraction, follow these three easy steps."

Step 1

If any of the fractions are mixed fractions, then first convert them into improper fractions.

Swap the numerator and denominator of the dividend fraction (the fraction after the ÷ sign) and change the operand to a 'x' instead of a '÷' .

Step 2

Multiply the numerators and denominators of the fractions together, This will give you the answer.

You should have now found your fraction of a number!

Step 3 - optional

You may want to convert the fraction into its simplest form and/or convert it back to a mixed fraction (if it is an improper fraction).
