    When you divide a fraction i think you flip it an it turns into a multiplication problem

    \(\sf\LARGE \frac{a}{b}\div\frac{c}{d} = \frac{a}{b} \times \frac{d}{c}=\frac{a ~\times ~d}{b ~\times~c}\)

    From what I gave you, you can just plug in \(\sf a= 4 \\ b= 11 \\c = 4 \\d=9\)

    No it would because when you have a problem like she has to flip a multiply is what you should do

    \(\sf\LARGE \frac{a}{b}\div\frac{c}{d} = \frac{a}{b} \times \frac{d}{c}=\frac{a ~\times ~d}{b ~\times~c}\) \(\sf a= 4 \\ b= 11 \\c = 4 \\d=9\)
