To divide a fraction by a fraction, write the first fraction the way it is. Then change the division into multiplication. Then flip the second fraction. |dw:1433201579300:dw|

10. mathstudent55

|dw:1433201645693:dw|

11. rainbow_rocks03

0.83333333333

12. mathstudent55

Now multiply the fractions: |dw:1433201810765:dw|

13. mathstudent55

The last step is to reduce the fraction if necessary. Here we see that both 20 and 24 are divisible by 4, so we can reduce the fraction. |dw:1433201844817:dw|

You're welcome. BTW, 0.052083333... is not the correct answer, so even if you wrote it as a fraction, it would still be wrong.
