Hi there again and welcome back to CSEReviewer.com. Our next CSC reviewer exercise will be about dividing fractions. Yes, we’re onto division now but if you want to review our previous exercise, then we recommend you take a look at the **Multiplying Fractions tutorial and practice questions** we posted. Before we proceed and fully understand how dividing fractions work, we first need to learn about RECIPROCALS. A reciprocal is a term used for when you invert a fraction. For example, if you have the fraction ** ^{3}⁄_{4 }**and asked to give its reciprocal, you just go and switch the bottom and top numbers. You will obviously get the fraction

^{4}⁄_{3. }_{3⁄4 –> 4⁄3}_{
}

** ^{4}⁄_{3 }**is the reciprocal of

**3⁄**and vice versa. But what do reciprocals have to do with dividing fractions? Well, it lets us use an awesome trick which makes dividing fractions really easy. For example, if you were given the problem

_{4}**here’s how you solve it;**

^{4}⁄_{5 }÷^{1}⁄_{2,}So don’t forget, in order to divide fractions properly;

**1.** Do not change the first fraction.

**2.** Convert the division sign into a multiplication sign.

**3.** Change the second fraction to its reciprocal.

**4.** Multiply them to get the answer.

**5.** This step is situational. Once you have the answer but can be converted to its lowest term, do so. Watch the video below if you don’t know or want to remember how to simplify fractions.

## Dividing Fractions Sample Exercise

Time for some sample exercises regarding dividing fractions. There are 20 items in this CSC reviewer that will help you in passing the CSC exam so try to get as many correct answers as possible. If the answer is an improper action, convert it to mixed numbers.
