'Divide a Fraction by a Fraction' worksheet

Curriculum topic:   Number

Curriculum subtopic:   Use Four Operations for All Numbers

Worksheet Overview

This worksheet is about dividing a fraction by a fraction.

To divide a fraction by another fraction, we can use the KFC method.

Keep the first fraction

Flip the second fraction

Change the ÷ to a ×

Once we have done this we multiply the fractions as we normally would by multiplying the numerators, and multiplying the denominators.

Examples

 

3 ÷ 1 = 3 x 4 = 12
5 4 5 1 5
4 ÷ 2 = 4 x 7 = 28 = 14
3 7 3 2 6 3

 

 

NB Answers in this worksheet should be given as reduced fractions, written with a / sign, e.g. 7/18

Leave fractions as top-heavy, but write integers as whole numbers (i.e. 5 not 5/1)
