    \[\frac{ 5 }{ 8 } \div \frac{ 3 }{ 4 } = \frac{ 5 }{ 96 } (0.052083...)\] @rainbow_rocks03

    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|

    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.
