**Reiny**, Tuesday, January 19, 2010 at 6:54pmI will do the first, you do the second

5/7 divided by 8/21

= (5/7)÷(8/21)

= (5/7)(21/8)

= 15/8 , (the 7 cancelled into the 21)

**Kelly**, Tuesday, January 19, 2010 at 7:00pmI'd like to learn this. How did you get 15/8. Did you multiply 5 by 3 to get that?

**Reiny**, Tuesday, January 19, 2010 at 7:03pmyes, to multiply fractions, you multiply the numerators, and you multiply the denominators.

e.g.

2/3 x 5/7 = 10/21

in your question of

(5/7)(21/8)

I had 105/56

= 15/8 after dividing top and bottom by 7
