How do you divide fractions by fractions?


Question asked by: littlemiss

Asked on: 02 Jun 2008

To divide fractions by fractions is easy when you know the method.

All that you need to do is reverse the second one and use a multiplication sign.

Thus:

1/3 divided by 1/3

is the same as 1/3 x 3/1

So this is 3/3 = 1.
