How to divide a fraction by a fraction?

Steps to divide a fraction by a fraction:

  1. Keep the first fraction as it is.
  2. Flip the second fraction by swapping the numerator and the denominator.
  3. Cancel any common factors in the numerators and denominators.
  4. Multiply the numerators together to get the new numerator, and multiply the denominators together to get the new denominator.
  5. Simplify the resulting fraction.

For example:
Divide 2/3 by 1/4.
Keep the first fraction as it is: 2/3.
Flip the second fraction: 1/4 becomes 4/1.
Multiply the first fraction by the flipped second fraction:
(2/3) × (4/1) = (2 × 4) / (3 × 1) = 8/3.
Simplify the fraction: we can rewrite 8/3 as the mixed number 2 2/3.
So, dividing 2/3 by 1/4 results in 2 2/3.
