Full explanation given as to how it all works.

Multiply by 1 and you do not change the value, but 1 comes in many forms. So we can change the way it looks without changing the intrinsic value.

To simplify ( 4 \frac{1}{4} \div 2 ), first convert the mixed number ( 4 \frac{1}{4} ) to an improper fraction, which is ( \frac{17}{4} ). Then, divide ( \frac{17}{4} ) by 2. The division of fractions is done by multiplying the numerator of the first fraction by the reciprocal of the second fraction. So, ( \frac{17}{4} \div 2 = \frac{17}{4} \times \frac{1}{2} = \frac{17}{8} ). Therefore, ( 4 \frac{1}{4} \div 2 = \frac{17}{8} ).
