Divide Fractions At the end of this lesson you should be able to answer the following question. How is the process used to divide fraction similar to the process used to multiply fractions? Divide Fractions To find the reciprocal of a fraction turn the fraction upside down. Example 3 4 Reciprocal of 4 is 3 Divide Fractions What is the reciprocal of: 1 2 Divide Fractions What is the reciprocal of: 1 2 2 1 Divide Fractions What is the reciprocal of: 5 Divide Fractions What is the reciprocal of: 5 1 5 Divide Fractions The product of a fraction and it’s reciprocal will always be what? Divide Fractions The product of a fraction and it’s reciprocal will always be what? 1 Example 5 6 x 6 5 30 = 30 =1 Divide Fractions To divide a number by a fraction, multiply the number by the reciprocal of the fraction. Example 1 1 3 2 ÷ = 1 3 2 1 x = 2 3 Divide Fractions Dividing fractions is as easy as pie, Just flip the second fraction and multiply.
