Teaching Fraction Division Easily

 

  • While dividing fractions with another fraction, the first fraction is taken as dividend and the other fraction is taken as divisor.


 

  • Now, change the division sign into multiplication and then write down the reciprocal of the other fraction. 


 

  • Finally, find the product by multiplying the numerator and denominator by themselves. 


 

Here is an example to solve a question on dividing fraction with another fraction. Let’s look at the given example mentioned below to understand more about dividing fractions and fractions. 


 

Q: Divide 12/8 by 2/4. 


 

Step 1: Take the dividend as fraction and whole number as divisor. 


 

So, 

12/8 / 2/4. 


 

Step 2: Secondly,  change the division sign into multiplication and then write down the reciprocal of the whole number. 


 

12 / 8 * 2 / 4 


 

Step 3: Multiply the denominator by denominator and numerator by numerator. 


 

12 / 8 * 4 / 2 = 3 / 4. 

Therefore, 12 / 8 / 2/4 = 3 / 4.
