Dividing fraction is simple, because to divide them, you multiply them. For example:

$\frac{6}{15}/\frac{7}{9}=?$

You can find the answer by flipping the numerator of the second number and multiplying instead.

$\frac{6}{15} * \frac{9}{7}=?$

Multiply the numerators together, and the denominators together (6 times 9 and 15 times 7)

$\frac{6}{15} * \frac{9}{7}=\frac{54}{105}$

Reduce if necessary.

$\frac{54}{105} = \frac{18}{35}$
