### What is meant by dividing fractions?

In Maths, fraction represents the part of a whole. It is defined as the ratio of numerator to denominator value. The number above the / is called the numerator and the one below the slash symbol is the denominator. Fractions are of various types namely like, unlike, proper, improper, mixed fractions, and so on. Let suppose a/b and c/d are two fractions then the division of fractions is given as such

(a/b)/(c/d)= ad/bc in which a, b, c, d are integers

### How to divide Fractions?

Fraction division has a step more than the fraction multiplication. However, it's way easier compared to the addition and subtraction as you need not worry about the denominators being like or unlike.

- Write the entire problem and replace the ÷ with an ×

- Flip the second fraction upside down i.e. switch the numerators place and denominator's place.
- Multiply the first fraction with the reversed second fraction.
- Simplify the fraction to the smallest possible denominator, with the numerator also reduced proportionately.

**Example**

Divide the fractions 3/4 and 5/6?

**Solution:**

Given Input fractions 3/4 and 5/6

Find the reciprocal of the second fraction 5/6 i.e. 6/5

After that multiply, the first and second fractions i.e. (3/4)*(6/5)

To do fraction multiplication multiply the numerators in both the fractions and denominators individually.

i.e. 3*6/4*5

= 18/20

Therefore, the division of fractions 3/4 and 5/6 is **18/20**
