When dividing mixed numbers with fractions you have to always convert the mixed numbers to fractions before being able to divide.


2 1/3 ÷ 3/4

Would first have to be converted to fractions:

7/3 ÷ 3/4

Then you just go by the normal rules for dividing fractions:

1. Find reciprocal (Flip the second fraction) & switch to multiplication

7/3 x 4/3

2. Multiple numerators together and then the denominators together:

7/3 x 4/3 = 28/9

3. If possible, reduce.

Depending on the teacher's directions, you may either reduce to simplest form (which it already is) or you may be asked to convert it to a mixed number.

You turn the mixed number into an improper fraction then multiply by the reciprocal.
