DIVIDE FRACTIONS Question 2A fraction is written as:numeratordenominator11 = 23Step 1:To divide fractions we create a complex fraction by putting the first fraction in thenumerator and the second fraction in the denominator, and we get the following:12----13Step 2: We then take the second fraction and create a new second fraction by putting the numerator in thedenominator, and the denominator in the numerator (1/3 becomes 3/1). We then multiply the first fraction by thisnew second fraction and we get the following:1 x 321Step 3:To multiply fractions we cross-multiply, and can write the following:1 x 32 x 1Step 4: Now, we can multiply the 2 numbers in the numerator and in the denominator of our new fraction and we get the following:32Step 5: As a proof of our answer we can say:1 = 3AND1 = 22636363----= --226Step 6: The answer can also be written as:3 = 2 + 1 = 2 + 1 = 1 + 1 = 1 1222222Note: The fraction 2/2 is equal to 1 because the numerator 2 and the denominator 2 are the same.Conclusion: We started out with two fractions and now have a whole number and a fraction.11 =3OR1 1/2 232CloseWindow
