We often talk of dividing as being the reverse of multiplying, and indeed when dividing fractions this is the case. The way you divide fractions is very similar to the way fractions are multiplied with a simple twist in the middle.

Before you cross cancel or multiply, however, swap the numerator and the denominator in the second fraction. This is called taking the reciprocal and it is the key step to turn this into a division operation. Then, cross cancel, multiply across to get the answer fraction, and reduce.
The last set of worksheets deals with commonly encountered fractions, including percentage values. These are values that students should be able to site reduce when they encounter them. Mastering these reducing problems will make many other fraction problems go much faster.
