Difficulty level:   #### Worksheet Overview

This activity is about dividing a fraction by a fraction.

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

No, not the yummy chicken and chips method - but nearly as much fun!!

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.

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