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
the answer is 273/252 I am not good at simplifying big numbers can someone please help me?

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!
