How do you solve a fraction over a fraction?

To simplify complex fractions, start by finding the inverse of the denominator, which you can do by simply flipping the fraction. Then, multiply this new fraction by the numerator. You should now have a single simple fraction.

Then, can you put a fraction over a fraction?

Dividing fractions: 3/5 ÷ 1/2. Dividing two fractions is the same as multiplying the first fraction by the reciprocal of the second fraction. The first step to dividing fractions is to find the reciprocal (reverse the numerator and denominator) of the second fraction. Then, multiply the two denominators.

Secondly, what is mixed number?

A mixed number is one that combines an integer and a fraction. They can be expressed initially as improper fractions and then broken down into their mixed number form.

What fraction is between 1 and 2?

The example fractions of 1/2, 2/3 and 3/4 with common denominators become 6/12, 8/12 and 9/12. The numerator 8 is between 6 and 9, so the fraction you created – 8/12, or 2/3 when simplified – is between the two fractions you started with.
