This is a tutorial on the basics of dividing fractions. The process the video teaches are linear equations where one fraction is divided next to another with a division sign in between. The top numbers are divided and then the bottom and thereby you get the answer. However not all numbers are divisible. When this happens the video teaches the method of multiplicative inverse whereby the divider fraction is flipped upside down which then changes the problem to one of multiplicationthink of this as 100 times its half or 100 divided by two. As you learn how to divide fractions and the inverse relationship you become more aware of their real world applications, what they actually mean.
