How do you write your answer in simplest form given #7/12 div 2/9#?
First we perform the arithmetic functions to arrive at a single fraction. Then we simplify it to the smallest numerical values possible.
This cannot be simplified further as 21 and 8 have no more common factors.
Dividing by a fraction is the same as multiplying by its reciprocal.
Dividing first makes the numbers smaller.
Now multiply straight across..
