5/28 divided by 1/7 = ?
5 Do I flip the second fraction only when its division then times across?
5/28 x 7/1 = 35/28
or
28/5 x 7/1 = 196/5 = 5/196

Math is this right?  bobpursley, Sunday, January 27, 2013 at 10:49pm
lord no.
division is the inverse operation of multiplication, so
(5/28)/(1/7)= (5/28)*(7/1)=5/4
