## How to do fraction division

**Introduction :**

The fraction is defined for mainly separating the two quantities. For the separation, there are many rules are followed. There are number of types are also present in the fraction. They are simply called as the proper fraction, improper fractions and the mixed fractions. These are the main types of fractions. There are many other types of fractions are also present. They are Complex fractions, equivalent fractions. For example, `4/9` is called the example of fraction.

Explanation for how to do fraction division

The explanation for how to do fraction division are shown as follows,

- For the division operation, first we have to take the reciprocal for the second terms.
- In this, no need to check the denominator is same or not. This will be only suitable for addition operation and the subtraction operation.
- Then, in the next step, we have to replace the sign of division into the multiplication.
- After that, multiply the numerator values for the both fractions.
- Then, multiply the denominator values for the both fractions.
- After that simplification are made the obtained fractions.

Example problem for how to do fraction division

**Problem 1:**How to do division for the following fractions, `4/5` and `8/6` .

**Solution:**

**Step 1:**First the given fraction can be written as,

`4/5` `-:` `8/6`

**Step 2:**In this, the sign is changed to multiplication from the division by taking reciprocal of the second term, we get,

`4/5` `-:` `8/6`

= `4/5` `xx` `6/8`

= `1/5` `xx` `6/2`

**Step 3:**Simplify obtained terms in the previous step, we get,

`1/5` `xx` `6/2`

= `6/10`

= `3/5`

This is the required result by dividing the fraction.

**Problem 2:**How to do division for the following fractions, `6/9` and `3/6` .

**Solution:**

**Step 1:**First the given fraction can be written as,

`6/9` `-:` `3/6`

**Step 2:**In this, the sign is changed to multiplication from the division by taking reciprocal of the second term, we get,

`6/9` `-:` `3/6`

= `6/9` `xx` `6/3`

= `2/9` `xx` `6/1`

**Step 3:**Simplify obtained terms in the previous step, we get,

`2/9` `xx` `6/1`

= `12/9`

= `4/3`

This is the required result by dividing the fraction.
