Tips

    1.  Rewrite the problem so that the second fraction is the reciprocal (opposite) and the problem becomes a multiplication problem. (Flip the second and multiply.)

    2.  Change mixed numbers to improper fractions.

    3.  Multiply the numerators and then the denominators. Cross cancel if possible.

    4. Reduce or Simplify (Final answer should be a proper fraction or mixed number).
