## How Does Dividing Fractions Calculator Work?

A fraction is made up of two parts, namely the numerator and the denominator. The number that is written above the bar or "/" symbol is known as the numerator. Similarly, the denominator is the number written below the bar. The numerator is used to represent a part of the whole while the denominator represents the whole. Fractions can be added, subtracted, divided, and multiplied. Given below are the steps to divide one fraction (say, A / B) by another fraction (say, C / D).

- The first fraction is left as it is; A / B
- We take the reciprocal or the inverse of the second fraction. This implies that we interchange the numerator with the denominator; D / C
- Multiply the numerators of the first fraction and the reciprocal of the second fraction (A × D). Write this value above the bar.
- Multiply the denominators of the two fractions (B × C). Write this value below the bar.
- Simplify the fraction. (A × D) / (B × C)
- This simplified fraction will be the result of the division of the two given fractions.

This process is also known as the KFC method.

## Solved Examples on Dividing Fractions

**Example 1:** Divide 1 / 3 by 5 / 3 and verify the result using the dividing fractions calculator.

**Solution:**

The reciprocal of 5 / 3 is 3 / 5

Now, we will solve 1 / 3 x 3 / 5 = 3 / 15

On simplification

3 / 15 = 1 / 5

Thus, 1 / 3 ÷ 5 / 3 = 1 / 5

**Example 2:** Divide 3 / 4.2 by 20.2 / 18 and verify the result using the dividing fractions calculator.

**Solution:**

The reciprocal of 20.2 / 18 is 18 / 20.2

Now, we will solve 3 / 4.2 x 18 / 20.2 = 54 / 84.84

On simplification

54 / 84.84 = 450 / 707

Thus, 3 / 4.2 ÷ 20.2 / 18 = 450 / 707

Now, you can try the calculator and divide the following fractions:

- 2 / 13 ÷ 3 / 15
- 20.2 / 30 ÷ 30 / 50.5
