You can search YouTube for "divide fractions", and find several.However, it isn't really that complicated; just remember the following simple rules:To divide one fraction by another fraction, take the reciprocal of the second fraction, then multiply.If you have mixed fractions, convert them both to improper fractions, then proceed as above (multiply by the reciprocal).

Express the mixed fraction as an improper fraction and then proceed as you would with ordinary fractions. If the answer is an improper fraction, then remember to convert to a mixed fraction.

Convert the fractions into equivalent fractions with the same denominator. In actually adding mixed numbers, it is easier to convert the mixed numbers into improper (top heavy) fractions, do the addition, simplify the resulting fraction and convert any resulting improper fraction back into a mixed number.

When you convert a decimal greater than 1 into a fraction its easier to change it into a mixed number first. Then change it into an improper fraction.

Convert this into an improper fraction (one that has only numerator and denominator). Then simply exchange the numerator and the denominator.

The reciprocal of a number is simply 1 divide by that number. A number, multiplied by its reciprocal, is equal to one.However, in the case of fractions, you can get the reciprocal simply by exchanging top and bottom. In this case, the reciprocal of 5/4 is 4/5. This works for proper and improper fractions; in the case of a mixed fraction, you have to convert that into an improper fraction first.

By definition, you can't convert between proper and improper fractions. You can convert improper fractions to mixed fractions, and vice versa.

You can't. Improper and proper fractions are two different things. You can convert an improper fraction to a mixed number.

How to convert improper fractions to mixed numbers

Convert the mixed fractions into improper fractions. Convert the integer into a fraction by simply dividing it by 1

It is best to convert the mixed fraction to an improper fraction. They are then added together in the same way as proper fractions are added together.

Express the mixed fraction as an improper fraction and then proceed as you would with ordinary fractions. If the answer is an improper fraction, then remember to convert to a mixed fraction.

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

Convert any mixed numbers to improper fractions. Once you have a fraction (proper or improper) do the division. 2/4 = 2 divided by 4 = 0.5
