Convert the mixed number into an improper fraction (multiply denominator by whole number, add numerator, put it all over the denominator) and multiply the improper fraction by the reciprocal of the number (1/the number).

For example:

1 3/4 divided by 4

First convert to improper fraction: 1 3/4 = 7/4

Then multiply by reciprocal: (7/4)*(1/4) = 7/16
