    how many 'fifths' are there in 1 when you answer that then you can work out how many 'fifths' are there in 9?

    if you divide something into five parts (i.e. into 'fifths') how many oyu got? YES its five so in NINE things - each divided into 5 parts how many parts you got?

    So now the formula for dividing fractions \(\large\bf\frac {a}{b}\div \frac {c}{d} = \frac {a}{b}\times \frac {d}{c} =\frac {ad}{bc}\)

    Just replace the variables with your numbers :) A can be replaced by 48 B can be replaced by 5 C is replaced by 11 And d is replaced by 5

    Don't forget to simplify the fractions before you multiply them.

    48/5 divided by 11/5 = 48/5 x 5/11 = ?

  38. AbdullahM

    Correct, amd you can simplify the fractions by dividing the 5 from the numerator and the denominator.
