Worksheet Overview

In this activity, we will be learning how to divide fractions by other fractions. 


We can do this by following some simple steps!


Remember: Keep, Flip and Change!

No, not that sort of KFC. 

Read on and we'll show you!


Let's try dividing a pair of fractions: 1/2 ÷ 2/3


Step 1: Keep the first fraction the same.

1/2 stays as 1/2


Step 2: Flip the second fraction.

2/3 becomes 3/2


Step 3: Change the operation from divide to multiply.

So, our equation will look like this: 1/2 × 3/2


To multiply the fractions, we simply multiply the numerators and the denominators. 

1/2 x 3/2 = 3/4


3/4 cannot be simplified so this our final answer.


Let's try an example question together. 



Work out the following.

1/9 ÷ 1/4 = __



First, we do KFC - keep, flip and change.


1/9 ÷ 1/4 will become 1/9 × 4/1


Then we multiply.

1/9 × 4/1 = 4/9


4/9 cannot be simplified any further, so this is our final answer.
