Here is a guide http://hubpages.com/hub/Adding-and-subtracting-fraction

(2/3) / (3/4) = [(2/3) / (3/4)] x [(4/3) / (4/3)] = (2/3) x (4/3)  = 8/9

all you need to do , is to put the divisor up side down and multiply

Welcome to the forum, !mathfun and lostmathmom.

I'm moving this to the Help Me forum ... hopefully you'll still be able to find it. I'll leave a redirect.

Thanks guys, and have fun on the forum.

for teaching, figuring it out like

(2/3) / n = (3/4)
(2/3) /= (3/4) *n
(2/3) / (3/4) = n
n= (2/3) / (3/4)
n= (2/3) * (4/3)
n= (2*4)/(3*3)
n= 8/9

Dividing by a fraction is the same as muiltiplying by its inverse:

I am trying to help my daughter divide fractions  the problem is 2/3 divided by n = 3/4.  I am having a terrible time figuring it out and  of course she has no book for examples.  Can anyone help?  Thanks so much:)
