Learn Dividing by a Fraction

To learn to divide by a fraction, we must first know some mathematical terms. Like- Reciprocal, Numerator, Denominator, and obviously what dividing fractions means. Because Dividing fractions is the same as multiplying the first fraction by the reciprocal of the second fraction.

The first step of dividing fractions is finding the reciprocal. Then multiply the two numerators. Then multiply the two denominators.

So, Dividing fractions means a division of the whole number by fractions, fractions by fractions, or fractions by whole numbers. That means division involves at least one fraction.

And, reciprocal is a maths term in which you have to switch fractions to top and bottom numbers. That means a change between Numerator & Denominator.

For example: If you have a fraction 3 over 4 and then switch the top and bottom numbers, you will end up with 4 over 3.

So, 3 over 4 is the reciprocal of 4 over 3,

and, 4 over 3 is the reciprocal of 3 over 4.

And, an Interesting thing about reciprocals is, multiplying a fraction by its reciprocal will always give you 1.

Example: 2/3 is the reciprocal of 3/2. So, if we multiply these two fractions, we get 2/3  x  3/2  = 1.
