**Reciprocals can help you divide by fractions**

Reciprocals can help you divide by fractions. Two numbers are reciprocals or multiplicative inverses if their product is 1. The reciprocal of is 3 because 1 3 1 3 3 = 1. Dividing by a number is the same as multiplying by its reciprocal. reciprocals 1 3 6 = 2 6 ÷ 3 = 2 same answer

**You can use this rule to divide by fractions.**

**Check It Out! Example 2 Write mixed numbers as improper fractions. ÷ ÷**

Divide. Write each answer in simplest form. 2 3 1 2 A. 3 ÷ 1 Write mixed numbers as improper fractions. 2 3 1 2 11 3 3 2 3 ÷ 1 = ÷ 11 3 3 2 = 2 3 Multiply by the reciprocal of . 22 9 4 9 or 2 = 3 5 2 5 B. ÷ 1 3 5 2 5 3 5 7 5 Write 1 as an improper fraction. 2 5 ÷ 1 = ÷ 7 5 3 5 5 7 = Multiply by the reciprocal of . 1 3 5 Simplify. = 5 7 1 3 7 =

**Additional Example 3: Social Studies Application**

The life span of a golden dollar coin is 30 years, while paper currency lasts an average of 1 years. How many 1 2 times longer will the golden dollar stay in circulation? 1 2 30 1 3 2 30 ÷ 1 = ÷ Write the number as an improper fraction. 30 1 2 3 3 2 = Multiply by the reciprocal of . 10 30 2 = Simplify. 1 3 1 20 1 = or 20 The golden dollar will stay in circulation about 20 times longer than paper currency.

**The queen ant will live 7 times longer than the worker ant.**

Check It Out! Example 3 The average life of a queen ant is approximately 3 years. The life span of a worker ant is year. How many 3 7 times longer will the queen ant live? 3 7 3 1 3 7 3 ÷ = ÷ Write the number as an improper fraction. 3 1 7 3 3 7 = Multiply by the reciprocal of . 1 3 7 = Simplify. 1 3 1 7 1 = or 7 The queen ant will live 7 times longer than the worker ant.
