Simple Fraction (no mixed): To divide a simple fraction you must multiply the 1st fraction by the reciprocal of the 2nd fraction. To make the reciprocal you "flip" the second fraction. For example 5/15 divided by 2/3 would become 5/15 multiplied by 3/2. We would next solve the problem like any other multtiplying fraction problem using all the steps we have already studied.
