    division actually doesn't exist for fractions.... so we need to re-write this |dw:1437279058861:dw|

    now we flip the second fraction and then we'll have multiplication so if my original fraction is 6/1 the flipped version would be 1/6

    Ok that could be written as 6/7 * 1/6 which is 6/42=1/7

    division for fractions don't exist (same as matrix division and vector division <--- non-existent) so we need to re-write the problem as |dw:1437279453903:dw|

    so take the second fraction and flip it. What's the flipped version of 5/8 ?

    for example if I have 3/4 the flipped version is 4/3
