divide and simplify

7/18 divided by 14/39

the first step is to change the recipricol which is 14/39 = 39/14
then multiply 7 x 39=273
18x14=252

Like many people, I do not like fractions. Decimals are much easier.

273/252 = 1.083333 = 1 83/100.

Since no number goes evenly into both 83 and 100 -- 1 83/100 is the simplified answer.

thank you so much, i hate simplifying big numbers they throw me off

You're welcome.

Many countries have almost completely abolished teaching about fractions.

Ooo i'd like to move to those countries!
