To divide any number by fraction:

1. Multiply the number by the reciprocal of the fraction

2. Simplify the resulting fraction if possible.

3. Check your answer: Multiply the result you got by the devisor and be sure it equals in original dividend.

example:

1/2 ÷ /4

=> 1/2 × 4/3 = 4/6 get the reciprocal

=> 4/6 ÷ 2/2 = 2/3 simplify

=2/3 final answer

In dividing, we have three parts:

In fractions, we have three parts: may have a

Here are the steps for

2. Next, the divisor is the one who is outside the division symbol (can't identify its name), or on the right side of the obelus (÷).

3. The divisor, that "divides" the dividend by its value is our thing here. Find its numerator and its denominator.

4. Switch the numerator and the denominator, this is called the

5. Proceed on multiplying fractions, it is done by multiplying the numerators by each other, and same with the denominators.

6. Simplify your answer if improper fraction: make a mixed number, if proper fraction: reduce to lowest term or divide the n by d to get the number, if n isn't divisible by d, don't do it.

7. Check by multiplying your quotient (the result) by the divisor (right to the obelus sign) and you should get your dividend back (left to the obelus sign)

8. Have a conclusion.

Here are the steps for MY

1. Make the dividend, and the divisor ALL DECIMALS. This is done by dividing the numerator by the denominator.

2. After the dividend and the divisor are ALL DECIMALS, divide it by each other.

3. There you get your answer, make it in fraction form.

4. Check by multiplying the quotient (result) by the divisor (right) and you should get back your own dividend (left)

5. Have your conclusion.

The reason why my own method (IDK if someone also did this, or its only me) is the one that I use is that the answer can be in decimal form, not just on fraction.

Method 1 Ex.

1. 2/3 ÷ 1/2 = x

Sol.

2/3 ÷ 1/2 = x

2/3 × 2/1 = x

4/3 = x

Method 2 Ex.

1. 2/5 ÷ 1/2 = x

0.40 ÷ 0.50 = x

8 / 10 = x
