2) copy, switch, flip

3)fing Greatest Common Fractor of diagonal #'s

4)divide diagonal #'s by GCF

5)multiply straight across

6)improper to mixed

7)simplify (if needed)
You divide mixed fractions by first changing them into improper fractions or decimals, and then you divide from there.

For example, if you had

1 1/2 / 2 1/2

then change it to improper fractions

3/2 / 5/2

then you can divide

3/2 x 2/5 = 6/10 = 3/5

Or the decimal way:

1.5 / 2.5 = .6
