    Dividing improper fractions same as proper fractions

    To divide Fraction, we need to reverse the second fraction that the numerator will be the denominator, and the denominator will be the numerator

    Then multiply the numerators together and the denominators together, and simplify the fraction if possible.

    7
    3
    ÷
    15
    4
    =
    7 x 4
