First, transform *mixed rational numbers* into *improper fractions* (the ones with numerator greater than denominator).

Then perform a division according to general rules of operation on fractions.

For instance, you have to divide

The first number produces

the second number produces

Now we can divide:

The resulting fraction can be reduced and, if it is *improper*, transformed *mixed rational number*.
