## How to Divide Two Mixed Fractions?

**A mixed fraction** is defined as a fraction** **represented as a combination of a whole and a proper fraction.

A mixed fraction is represented as \(a\frac{b}{c}\) = \(\frac{(a × c) + b}{c}\)

Please follow the below steps to find the division of two mixed fractions:

**Step 1:**Convert the mixed fractions into improper fractions.**Step 2:**Now, take the reciprocal of the second fraction.**Step 3:**Now multiply the values of numerators after converting them into an improper fraction and taking the reciprocal of the second fraction**Step 4:**Now multiply the values of denominators after converting them into improper fractions and express the fraction in its simplest form.

**Solved Example:**

Divide \(5 \frac{2}{3}\) and \(2 \frac{5}{4} \)

**Solution:**

We first convert the mixed fractions into improper fractions.

\(5 \frac{2}{3}\)= \(\frac{(5×3)+2}{3}\) = \(\frac{17}{3}\)

\(2 \frac{5}{4} \) = \(\frac{(2×4)+5}{4}\)= \(\frac{13}{4}\)

= \(\frac{17}{3} / \frac{13}{4}\)

= \(\frac{17}{3} × \frac{4}{13}\)

= \(\frac{68}{39}\)

Similarly, you can try the calculator and find the division for the following mixed fractions:

- \(2 \frac{5}{4}\) and \(3 \frac{8}{4}\)
- \(3 \frac{8}{7}\) and \(4 \frac{3}{5}\)
