Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0Now since you see it as a division problem, find the common denominator and etc. But then again, mertsj's method works well too.

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0In this sort of situation, I would go about it by realising that division is the inverse of multiplication  by that, I mean that something like \[\frac{ 3 }{ 4 } \div \frac{ 5 }{ 6 } = \frac{ 3 }{ 4 } \times \frac{ 6 }{ 5 }\] All I did here was flip the fraction that I'm dividing by. So, in your situation, you can imagine that the fraction on the top is beind divided by the fraction on the bottom, so you can just multiply the fraction on the top by the inverse (flipped version) of the fraction on the bottom.
