=1/2*6/1

=6/2

=3

Hope this helps, atom_computer

To explain why this is true:

When you divide fractions, you can take the fraction in the denominator (the number on the bottom), in this case, 1/6 and flip it around to make it 6/1.

Then multiple 6/1 by the numerator (the number on top), in this case, 1/2. That's how we got "=1/2*6/1" above.

With multiplication, multiply both numerators for the numerator in the answer, and multiply the denominators for the denominator in the answer. That's how we got 6/3 which reduces to 2.

When you are not sure, take something you know, like 6/3. You know that's 2 right? (In fraction form this is 6/1 / 3/1) When you apply the rules above you get 6/1 * 1/3. Multiply numerators, you get 6 on top, multiply denominators, you get 3 on the bottom, for 6/3 or 2.

Always understand how you get your answers. A lot of practice will help. Good Luck.
