This **dividing fractions calculator** simplifies the process of **dividing one fraction** by another using **(a/b) ÷ (c/d) = (a/b) * (d/c)** formula. It takes **two fractions** as input and provides the **result** in its **simplest form**.

If you want to divide

3/4by1/2, the calculator would show that the result is3/2or1.5.

## Dividing Fractions Formula

The **formula** for dividing fractions is:

**(a/b) ÷ (c/d) = (a/b) * (d/c)**

To divide fractions:

Keep the first fractionas is.Multiplyit by thereciprocalof the second fraction (flip the numerator and denominator).Multiply the numeratorsanddenominators.Simplifyif possible.

**Example**: (3/4) ÷ (1/2) = (3/4) * (2/1) = 6/4 = 3/2 = 1.5

## How to Divide Fractions? (Explain in detail)

To **divide fractions**:

**Write the division problem**: Place the fractions in the order they appear in the problem.**Change the division sign to multiplication**: Replace ÷ with *.**Flip the second fraction**: Swap its numerator and denominator.**Multiply the numerators**: Multiply the top numbers.**Multiply the denominators**: Multiply the bottom numbers.**Simplify the result**: Reduce the fraction if possible.

**Example**: 5/6 ÷ 2/3

- (5/6) ÷ (2/3)
- (5/6) * (3/2)
- (5
*3) / (6*2) - 15 / 12
**Simplify**to 5/4 or**1.25**

## How do I Divide Fractions with Different Denominators?

**Keep the first fraction**as is.**Change the division sign to multiplication**.**Flip the second fraction**(reciprocal).**Multiply the fractions**.**Simplify the result**.

The **denominators** being different doesn’t change the process. You don’t need to find a **common denominator** when dividing fractions.

**Example**: 3/8 ÷ 2/5

- (3/8) ÷ (2/5)
- (3/8) * (5/2)
- (3
*5) / (8*2) - 15 / 16
- Result: 15/16 (which cannot be simplified further)

## How to Divide Fractions with Mixed Numbers?

To **divide fractions** with **mixed numbers**:

**Convert mixed numbers to improper fractions**:

- Multiply the
**whole number**by the**denominator**. - Add this to the
**numerator**. - Put the result over the
**original denominator**.

**Proceed with regular fraction division**:

**Flip the second fraction**.**Multiply the fractions**.**Simplify the result**.

**Example**: 2 1/4 ÷ 1 1/2

- Convert to
**improper fractions**:- 2 1/4 = (2*4 + 1) / 4 = 9/4
- 1 1/2 = (1*2 + 1) / 2 = 3/2

- Set up the division: (9/4) ÷ (3/2)
**Flip the second fraction**and multiply: (9/4) * (2/3)**Multiply numerators and denominators**: 18/12**Simplify**: 3/2 or**1 1/2**
