DIVIDE FRACTIONS Question 1
A fraction is written as:
numerator
denominator
1 ÷
1 =
2 2
Step 1:To divide fractions we create a complex fraction by putting the first fraction in the
numerator and the second fraction in the denominator, and we get the following:
1
2

1
2
Step 2: Since the numerator 1/2 and the denominator 1/2 are the same we get:
1
Conclusion: We started out with two fractions and now have a whole number because the quotient of one half
divided by one half is a whole or the number 1.
1 ÷
1 = 1
