This is a divsion problem, so we need to flip the second fraction. Then we need to multiply the numerator and denominator of the fractions to get the quotient.

Whole × Denominator + Numerator = New Numerator

2991 × 4 + 1 = 11965

3 × 2 + 1 = 7

Re-writing the first fraction, we get 11965/4.

Re-writing the first fraction, we get 7/2.

When we divide fractions, we have to switch the numerator and denominator of the

*second*fraction:

Now our second fraction is 2/7.

Multiply the numerators together, and multiply the denominators together:

11965/4 x 2/7 = 23930/28

The fraction 23930/28 is not in lowest terms, so we need to reduce it. List the factors of the numerator and denominator:

Factors of 23930: 1,

**2**,

Factors of 28: 1,

**2**,

Numerator: 23930 ÷ 2 = 11965

Denominator: 28 ÷ 2 = 14

11965/14

11965/14 is improper because the numerator is greater than or equal to the denominator. We need to turn it into a mixed number. Divide the denominator into the numerator.

The resulting fraction is:

854 9/14
