Question

# Divide the following fractions.

Hint:

### The first step to dividing fractions is to find the reciprocal (reverse the numerator and denominator) of the second fraction. Next, multiply the two numerators. Then, multiply the two denominators. Finally, simplify the fractions if needed.

## The correct answer is:

### Here, we have to divide 8⁄56 by 1⁄8.

We have, 8⁄56 ÷ 1⁄8

= 8⁄56 × 8

= 8⁄7

= 1 1⁄7.

Hence, the correct option is A.

Dividing two fractions is the same as multiplying the first fraction by the reciprocal of the second fraction.
