Remember that to divide fractions you FLIP and MULTIPLY.

So we FLIP the second number 6/5 becomes 5/6 and then MULTIPLY the two fractions.

8/7 x 5/6 = (8x5)/(7x6)

= 40/42

= 20/21 (reduced)

Further instruction for dividing fractions can be found at the website listed in Related Links, below.

Also if you want to know why we're allowed to flip and multiply look up the Chinese Method for Dividing Fractions.
