To divide by a fraction, you multiply by its reciprocal. This is related to the facts that (1) division is the opposite of multiplication, and (2) a reciprocal is the multiplicative "opposite" of a number.
When you divide one number by another which is not a factor.
To divide one fraction by another fraction,flip the second one over and multiply them.
When dividing one fraction by another, invert the second fraction and multiply them.
One simple way is to flip the second fraction over (use its reciprocal) and multiply them.
Not if the fraction is positive. But yes if the fraction is negative. Study the rules of multiplication and division by integers, and you wil see why. Multiplication by a fraction is simplty multiplication by one integer followed by division by another (or the other way round).
It is the binary operation of multiplication which has two inputs, at least one of which comprises a mixed fraction: that is, a fraction which consists of an integer part and a part which is a proper fraction.
when ever you divide fractions you must always flip the fraction you are dividing and change the division sign to multiplication, ex. 1/2 divded by 1 = 2/1 multiplied by 1/1 which equals 2
3 divided by 1/6 is the same thing as 3x6....you always flip the fraction after the division sign, and change it to multiplication when dividing fractions -sophmore in high school-
divide the denominator by the numerator
when u have to divide a fraction by fraction, you must turn the left fraction upside down and change the division to multiplication. so in this case, 1and 3/4 is equal to 7/4. 7/4 divided by 1/3= 7/4 times 3/1 =21/4 =answer:)
To get a percentage, divide one number by another to first get your answer in a fraction. Then, just multiply this by 100 to get your percentage.
