Today I'm going to be talking about dividing fractions.
Dividing fractions is almost the same as multiplying fractions.
To divide fractions, you need to know what a Reciprocal is.
To get a Reciprocal, you just have to divide the fraction by one.

All the reciprocal is, is making the number equal 1!
So know that we know what a reciprocal is, we can start answering some questions.

Then we make the reciprocals.
now you multipy the fractions to get your answer.
