Are you asking if \[\frac{5}{12} \div \frac{1}{2} \times \frac{7}{6} = \frac{35}{144}\]

yes

Okay

So that means, all you have to do is flip the 1/2: \[\frac{5}{12} \times \frac{2}{1} \times \frac{7}{6}\]

Now you can just multiply the numerators then the denominators.

ok il do that

35/36

Actually, If you write it like this: \[\frac{(5)(2)(7)}{(12)(6)}\] You'll realize that you can cancel 2 and 6

Good job

\[\frac{(5)(7)}{(12)(3)} = \frac{35}{36}\]

Remember that when you're dividing two fractions you have to flip the second fraction according to the reciprocal rule.

ok thanks for that i was confused as to why you flipped it/... thank u

when it is a for example 36/84 if you cant divide after that you find the lcm to get an answer ? this question also refers to when dividing
Hero
  • Hero
You probably forgot to reduce factors of one before multiplying
anonymous
  • anonymous
look 4/3 divided by 9/28 ( i already flipped the 2nd part) = 36/84 lcm is 12 my final answer would be 3/7
Hero
  • Hero
I would do it this way: \[\frac{4}{3} \div\frac{9}{28} = \frac{4}{3} \times \frac{28}{9} = \frac{(4)(4)(7)}{(3)(3)(3)} = \] Doing it this way we see that nothing cancels. So we have to multiply it all out.

ok got it

However, after multiplying, you'll have an improper fraction.

You'll have to re-write it as a whole number plus a fraction
