Dividing fractions

The division of fractions can be difficult. Therefore you can use the fraction online calculator to make dividing fractions easy. A fraction is a division of two numbers. The number above the scoreline is called the numerator and the number below the scoreline is the denominator. To divide fractions you first reverse the numerator and the denominator numbers of the second fraction. To do this you need to turn the second fraction (the one you want to divide by) upside down. This is now a reciprocal. Then multiply the first fraction by the reciprocal. For example:

2/15 : 1/3    -->    2/15 x 3/1 = 6/15

The fraction calculator automatically simplifies the result of the calculation into the simplest form in which the numerator and denominator are as small as possible. Use the fraction calculator to practice dividing fractions or check your answers.
