**how to divide fractions**

Dividing fractions is simple! All you have to do is remember one simple rule:

1) 7/9 / 1/2

7/9 * 2/1 Flip and switch

7 * 2 = 14 Multiply numerators

9 * 1 = 9 Multiply denominators

7/9 / 1/2 = 14/9

**switch**and**flip**! First, write the first fraction, then**switch**the operation from division to multiplication and**flip**the second fraction. Finally, multiply to solve.1) 7/9 / 1/2

7/9 * 2/1 Flip and switch

7 * 2 = 14 Multiply numerators

9 * 1 = 9 Multiply denominators

7/9 / 1/2 = 14/9
