First, make the both of them an improper fraction.

Second, reciprocal the second fraction (ex. 90/9 / 80/20 become 90/9 / 20/80)

Third, lowest term the both of them by x

ex. 90/9 / 20/80 do the denominator of the first fraction and numerator of the second fraction... do the numerator of the first fraction and the denominator of the second fraction. DN=ND

Fourth, do the cross multiplication! :)

That's all! Ask me if you don't understand a little bit. . :)

Solution: Change the mixed numbers into improper fraction.

*(How? first, look at the first mixed fraction first. multiply the denominator to the whole number then add the numerator.after doing the first whole number, do the same to the second.)*

*(do the reciprocal before going to the next step.)*

**NOTE:**is making the denominator the numerator, and making the numerator the denominator.

*Reciprocal*It will be:

*Divide the fractions.*

*(cancel if possible)*

*Example 2: Divide a mixed number by a whole number.*

Solution: Rename the mixed number to improper fraction.

*(example 1)*

**Divide a fraction by multiplying the reciprocal of it's divisor.**

NOTE: Every denominator of whole numbers is always 1.

NOTE: Every denominator of whole numbers is always 1.

**(cancel is possible.)**

Example 3: Divide the mixed number by the fraction.

Solution: Rename the mixed number as an improper fraction.

Multiply by the reciprocal of the divisor.

**(cancel is possible)**

*(How to get the Lowest term? first,divide: 7÷2=. the whole number is the quotient. the numerator is answer in the bottom. and the denominator is still the denominator.)*

Hope this helps.
