Fractions & Decimals
SAVE IT, CHANGE IT, FLIP IT.
That is all you need to remember when dividing fractions. Easy as 1, 2, 3. Seriously, it's almost as easy as multiplying; you just need to add one more step, multiply by the reciprocal of the 2nd fraction. Let's look at this example:
|SAVE IT. |
Keep the first fraction the same
|CHANGE IT and FLIP IT.|
Change the division sign to a multiplication sign.
Take the reciprocal of the second fraction.
|Now, multiply and reduce as usual|
|And here's our answer.|
Look Out: always flip the second fraction, not the first!
