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}
