divide and simplify

7/18 divided by 14/39

the first step is to change the recipricol which is 14/39 = 39/14

then multiply 7 x 39=273

18x14=252

the answer is 273/252 I am not good at simplifying big numbers can someone please help me?

Like many people, I do not like fractions. Decimals are much easier.

273/252 = 1.083333 = 1 83/100.

Since no number goes evenly into both 83 and 100 -- 1 83/100 is the simplified answer.

You're welcome.

Many countries have almost completely abolished teaching about fractions.
