  1. It is possible to divide fractions by fractions. You can write a unit rate dealing with fractions by using fraction division.

    For example: If ½ of the apples are rotten in every ¾ of the boxes then the unit rate is: ⅔ rotten apples per box.

    The only difference is that you are dealing with fractions.
