You don't need a common denominator to divide fractions.

Note: numerator is the top part of the fraction, denominator is the bottom part. 1) Find a common denominator. It may be the least common denominator, but it need not be; just multiplying the denominators also gives you a common denominator, not necessarily the smallest one. 2) Convert each fraction so that it has this common denominator. This means multiplying numerator and denominator by the same number.

You DO need a common denominator to add, subtract, or compare fractions. You DO NOT need a common denominator to multiply or divide fractions.

No. Dividing fractions is achieved by inverting the divisor and multiplying the resulting fractions. To multiply fractions the numerators are multiplied together to form the new numerator and the denominators are multiplied together to form the new denominator.
