7/9 divid 3/6

how do u divid fractions

ok, so its kinda like multiplying fractions except u flip the second one upside down(reciprocal): so 1/2 divided by 2 = 1/2 divided by the reciprocal of 2 which is 1/2 so 1/2 * 1/2 = 1/4
thus, in this case, it would be 7/9 divided by reciprocal of 3/6 = 6/3 so 7/9* 6/3 = 7/9 * 2 = 14/9 : 1 5/9 

thank u knight and sue
