### Dividing Fractions

There are four steps:

#### Example 1.

^{1}/_{2}÷^{3}/_{4}=#### Example 2.

^{2}/_{3}÷^{5}/_{6}=

**(a)** swap the numerator and denominator of the second fraction around

**(b)** change the ÷ to a ×

^{1}/_{2} × ^{4}/_{3} =

**(c)** multiply the numerators, and multiply the denominators

= ^{4}/_{6}

**(d)** write fraction in its simplest form

= ^{2}/_{3}

**(a)** swap the numerator and denominator of the second fraction around

**(b)** change the ÷ to a ×

^{2}/_{3} × ^{6}/_{5} =

**(c)** multiply the numerators, and multiply the denominators

= ^{12}/_{15}

**(d)** write fraction in its simplest form

= ^{4}/_{5}
