DIVIDE FRACTIONS Question 1

A fraction is written as:
numerator
denominator


1  ÷
  1  =
2       2

Step 1:To divide fractions we create a complex fraction by putting the first fraction in the numerator and the second fraction in the denominator, and we get the following:
 1 
 2 
----
 1 
 2 
Step 2: Since the numerator 1/2 and the denominator 1/2 are the same we get:
1
Conclusion: We started out with two fractions and now have a whole number because the quotient of one half divided by one half is a whole or the number 1.
1  ÷   1  = 1
2       2
