Question

Divide the following fraction:
4 over 9 divided by 2 over 5

  1. 1 over 9
  2. 2 over 9
  3. 10 over 9
  4. 1 over 8

Hint:

The reciprocal of a fraction is a simple way of interchanging the fraction's numerator and denominator.

The correct answer is: 10 over 9


Here, we have to divide the given fraction.
= 4 /9 ÷ 2/5
= 4/9 × 5/2
= 2/9 × 5/1
= 10/9
Hence, the correct option is (c).

To remove the sign of division, we take the reciprocal of the second fraction and multiply the fraction (4/9) by the reciprocal of the second fraction.
