**Word Problems of Dividing Fractions by Cross Canceling**

**Cross-cancellation is a shortcut for making fractions** easier to multiply.

This is because a fraction division problem may always be converted to a fraction multiplication problem.

- Take the reciprocal of the divisor. To find the reciprocal of a fraction, simply switch the numerator and denominator. The divisor is the number being divided.
- If either factor is not in its simplest form, simplify it immediately.
- Cancel any factors that appear in both the numerator and the denominator. Because both elements are placed diagonally from each other, we call it cross-cancellation.
- Repeat the previous step on the other diagonal.
- Multiply all numerators and all denominators to get the answer.
