**Ms. Sue**, Monday, October 1, 2012 at 7:11pm1) Multiply:

1/5 * 3/4 = 3/20

2) Multiply as I showed you above.

3) Divide:

60/(3/4) = 60 * (4/3) = ?

**Ms. Sue**, Monday, October 1, 2012 at 7:23pmNo. The answer to number 3 is not 45. Multiply (60/1) * (4/3).

When we divide fractions, the divisor must be inverted and then multiplied.
