How to Divide Mixed Numbers?

Dividing mixed numbers can only be done by converting mixed fractions into improper fractions. Mixed fractions is also called as mixed numbers. Division of mixed numbers is the method of distributing a variety of things into equal parts. And we use a simple algebraic formula for manual calculations.

(A divided by B)/(C divided by D) = (A multiplied by D) / (B multiplied by c)

(a/b)/(c/d) = (a*d)/(b *c)


a/b, c/d are fractions

a,b,c,d are integers

Steps to Solve Dividing Mixed Numbers

We will see some simple steps to divide mixed numbers in more convenient and easy way.

  • Let us write the mixed numbers given in the question.
  • Convert the mixed numbers into improper fractions.
  • Now apply the formula: a/b / c/d = (a * d) / (b * c)
  • Substitute the values and simplify it to its lowest form.
  • As we have answer in improper fraction, again convert it into mixed number

Dividing Mixed Numbers with Example


Question: Compute 5(68/12) and 4(22/7)?


Given, 5(68/12), 4(22/7)

Convert mixed numbers to improper fraction.

Mixed fraction 1: 5(68/12) = ((5 *12)+68)/12 = 128/12

Mixed fraction 2: 4(22/7) = ((4*7)+22)/7 = 50/7

Improper fractions: (128/12), (50/7)


Apply the algebraic formula

(a/b)/(c/d) = (a.d)/(b .c)

(128/12)/(50/7) = (128 * 7)/(12 *50)

896/600 = 112/75

Convert 112/75 to mixed number

112/75 = 1(37/75)

Division of (128/12)/(50/7) is 1(37/75)
