    Formula

    We multiply the fractions so that the second fraction numbers are in inverse (mean: the first fraction remained the same, the second fraction reversed, the numerator becomes denominator and the denominator becomes numerator).

    a
    b
    ÷
    c
    d
    =
    a x d
    b x c

    Example:

    4
    6
    ÷
    6
    12
  • 1

    Reverse the numbers of the second fraction, then multiply the numerators together and the denominators together.

    4
    6
    ÷
    6
    12
    =
    4 x 12
    6 x 6
    =
    48
