Common Denominator Division Created By: Mia Peric
Introduction Dividing fractions is easier than you think. It might seem complicated at first but it will become clear later. In this slideshow I will show you how I learned to divide fractions by whole numbers and fractions by fractions.
Fractions by Whole Numbers The way I divide fractions is I switch the numerator and denominator. This is what I do. First I rewrite the question. 6 / 3/5 =
Step 2 Next I rewrite the whole number as a fraction. 6 = 6/1
Step 3 I switch the numerator and denominator for one fraction. 3/5 = 5/3
Step 4 I multiply my new fractions to get the answer. 6/1 * 5/3 = 30/3 = 10
Answer The answer to this is 10. 6 / 3/5 = 10
