How To: Divide two fractions

Divide two fractions

The video teaches the viewer to divide one fraction by another. The process involves taking the reciprocal of the second fraction (flipping it upside down); so if you want to divide 7/3 by 1/2, you flip 1/2: it becomes 2/1. Then it is a multiplication problem: 7/3 x 2/1. The way to multiply two fractions is to multiply the top numbers (here, 7 x 2) over the bottom numbers (here, 3 x 1). So the product of 7/3 x 2/1 is 14/3.
