Could I please have some help with this
Calcuate the following and simplify where possible
3/7 divided by 2/3
1/4 divided by 5/6
1/3 divided by 5/12

I'll do the first one. Then you can use it as a model to do the other two.
3/7 divided by 2/3
When we divide fractions, we change the division sign to a multiplication sign and invert the divisor.
(3/7) * (3/2) =
Multiply the numerators together. Multiply the denominators together.
(3/7) * (3/2) = 9/14 
Thank you Ms. Sue, would you mind checking my answers fort he other two.
1/4 divided by 5/6 = 3/10 ?
1/3 divided by 5/12 = 4/5 ?
Also I have one more
12 divided by 3/4 = would this be 1 ? 
You're welcome.
Your first two answers are correct.
(12/1) / (3/4)
(12/1) * (4/3) = 48/3 = 16
