## Overview

We can use what we know about multiplication and division to divide fractions by
fractions. Most of the time, we can follow a simple formula.

Let’s look at an example.

Step 1: Turn the second fraction upside down (now it is the reciprocal)

Step 2: Multiply across the first fraction and the reciprocal

Step 3: Simplify the fraction (if needed)
