You can write the mathematical question into words to help you understand it more.
You can also draw a picture, for example:
-How many equal groups of 1/2 go into 6?
There are 12 halves in 6, therefor 6 divided by 1/2 is 12.
Another way of doing it is simply multiplying 6 by 2 which gives you 12.
1/2 ÷ 2 = 1/4 -How many 2 go into 1/2? ← now this question doesn't seem to make sense so we're going to say this question in words in another way: Share 1/2 with 2 equal groups.
-first draw a rectangle and cut it in half.
-then shade one half.
-you cut that shaded part in half and shade 1/2 of it.
-you've now shared 1/2 in 2 equal parts/
You can also get the answer for dividing fractions in a different method. It is when you use a reciprocal.
A reciprocal is the fraction you use to make the denominator 1. You can write it with a fraction line to represent the division.
←To do that, you just write the same numbers of the denominators but on the opposite side (top/bottom), and it should equal 1. Then whatever you do to one side you do to the other.
Another pattern of reciprocal is when the numbers across each other diagonally are the same.
