# How do you divide 2\frac{6}{7}\div \frac{5}{14}?

Mar 13, 2018

$= 8$

#### Explanation:

2 6/7 ÷ 5/14

= 20/7 ÷ 5/14

$= \frac{20}{7} \times \frac{14}{5}$

$= \frac{40}{5}$

$= 8$

Change the mixed fraction to an improper fraction. After that, change the divide sign into the multiply sign, make sure to invert the numbers for the second fraction when doing so.

After that, simplify any number that you can and multiply whatever is left. If the number you have can be simplified more, then do it (if it says so). In this case, you can, so then that should be your answer.
