Homework Help: division of fractions

Posted by Brenda on Saturday, October 7, 2006 at 9:12pm.

Division of fractions is sometimes said to be multiplication of inverses. Elaborate with an explanation and example.


If you have a/b divided by c/d this is the same as a/b * d/c
If e.g., we have 2/3 divided by 7/9
then we have 2/3 * 9/7 = 6/7
When dividing fractions the rule is toinvert or reciprocate the second fraction and multiply them.
