divide fractions
To divide fractions, you need to do the following:
1. divide the numerators of the fractions.
2. divide the denominators of the fractions.
3. Place the product of the numerators over the product of the
denominators.
4. Simplify the Fraction
Example:
2 3
 X 
9 12
Steps:
1. divide the numerators (2x3=6)
2. divide the denominators (9x12=108)
3. Place the product of the numerators over the product of the
denominators (6/108)
4. Simplify the Fraction (6/108 = 1/18)
The Easy Way. It is often simplest to "cancel" before doing the
multiplication. Cancelling is dividing one factor of the numerator
and one factor of the denominator by the same number.
For example:
2/9 x 3/12 = (2x3)/(9x12) = (1x3)/(9x6) = (1x1)/(3x6) = 1/18
