Q:

Divide. Express your answer in simplest form. 3/11 ÷ 4/7

Accepted Solution

A:
Hello.When dividing fractions, you never actually divide. You actually flip the second fraction, then multiply.So, to convert this into a multiplication problem, we flip the second fraction, which is 4/7, then replace the division sign with a multiplication sign.The problem is now 3/11 x 7/4. None of the fractions can be simplified, so we multiply. Multiply across the top and bottom. (3 * 7 = 21) - (11 * 4 = 44)We end up with 21/44. It cannot be simplified, so this is our final answer.Hope this was helpful!
