# What is #1/2 -: 3/4#?

A fraction is actually a division problem so to divide two fractions set it up as a division problem or complex fraction. This makes the most sense.

Also multiplying by the inverse equals one

Dividing a fraction by a fraction makes sense and is easier to remember, even thought it takes longer.

Here is another approach to understand WHY the method of Multiply and Flip works to divide by a fraction, rather than just HOW to do it.

Quarters are obtained when a whole number is divided into four equal pieces, each is a quarter.

That means, once you have the total number of quarters, divide them into groups of three's - each group will be 'Three' quarters.

(ie. once with a bit left over.) .

Hence the simple rule of Multiply and flip.

To divide fractions, you can multiply the first fraction by the reciprocal of the second fraction.

So, 1/2 ÷ 3/4 is the same as 1/2 × 4/3.

When you multiply these fractions, you multiply the numerators together and the denominators together.

1/2 × 4/3 = (1 × 4) / (2 × 3) = 4/6.

Now, you can simplify the fraction by dividing both the numerator and the denominator by their greatest common divisor, which is 2.

4/6 simplifies to 2/3.

Therefore, 1/2 ÷ 3/4 equals 2/3.

When evaluating a one-sided limit, you need to be careful when a quantity is approaching zero since its sign is different depending on which way it is approaching zero from. Let us look at some examples.
