Dividing fractions 4/5 ÷ 7/8 = ?

When you are dividing fractions, invert the divisor. In other words, flip the right fraction. 4/5 ÷ 7/8 8/7= ?

Then switch the division sign into the multiplication sign. 4/5 ÷ × 8/7= ?

Finally, multiply the two numerators with each other and the two denominators with each other. Remember to reduce your answers! 4/5 × 8/7= 32/35

Now try some problems! 1/2 ÷ 6/8= ? 4/9 ÷ 7/10= ? 1/3 ÷ 4/6= ? 6/13 ÷ 3/4= ? 6/7 ÷ 2/9= ? 5/6 ÷ 4/7= ? 1/3 ÷ 1/2= ? 1/2 ÷ 1/3= ? 3/5 ÷ 2/3= ? 2/7 ÷ 3/9= ? 5/9 ÷ 9/10= ? 6/9 ÷ 1/5= ?

Answers 1/2 ÷ 6/8= 2/3 4/9 ÷ 7/10= 40/63 1/3 ÷ 4/6= 1/2 6/13 ÷ 3/4= 8/13 6/7 ÷ 2/9= 3 33 3 6/7 5/6 ÷ 4/7=1 3/8 1/3 ÷ 1/2= 2/3 1/2 ÷ 1/3= 1 11 1 1/2 3/5 ÷ 2/3= 9/10 2/7 ÷ 3/9= 6/7 5/9 ÷ 9/10= 50/81 6/9 ÷ 1/5= 3 33 3 1/3 These are whole numbers.
