Question

Divide the following fraction:
6 over 7 divided by 4 over 9

  1. 10 over 34
  2. 2 over 7
  3. 27 over 14
  4. 10 over 21

Hint:

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

The correct answer is: 27 over 14


Here, we have to divide the given fraction.
Now, 6/7 ÷ 4/9
= 6/7 × 9/4
=3/7 × 9/2
=3×9 /7×2
=27/14
Hence, the correct option is (c).

To remove the sign of division, we take the reciprocal of the second fraction and multiply the fraction (6/7) by the reciprocal of the second fraction.
