Just divide the numerator with the denominator.

Multiply (or divide) the numerator and the denominator both by the same number.

The number which is on top of the division problem is the answer, obviously, or the quotient. :) The top number of a fraction is the numerator.

because you can not divide numerator (the small number) by the a denominator (the big number) like this: 12 < not this --- 12 divided by 7 5 7 < first this the answer is 1--- 7

Because they are equivalent fractions

if your problem is a number with 1 as the numerator the quotient is the bottom # 1 _ 5 5 is the quotient.

No. Divide the numerator by the denominator.

That would be the numerator. The numerator is above the denominator. The numerator divided by the denominator would be equal to the quotient. So, numerator/denominator = quotient

The answer is the whole number multiplied by the denominator of the fraction.n / (1/m) = n*m

divide

no

A fraction or a quotient.

To make a fraction into a decimal, you divide the numerator of the fraction by the denominator. The numerator is the number on top, and the denominator is the number on the bottom of the fraction.

The quotient is less than the fraction.

Divide the numerator by the denominator

A numerator is the number in a fraction that lies abovethe divide line. The number that lies below the divide line is the denominator.For example, the fraction 3/4 has a numerator (3) and a denominator (4).the top number in a fractionThe numerator is the upper half of a fraction.

you have to put a one under that number and then rewrite it and when dividing you actually multiply and maybe simplify if not then your done.
