# Find: i) 12 ÷ 3/4 ii) 14 ÷ 5/6 iii) 8 ÷ 7/3

iv) 4 ÷ 8/3 v) 3 ÷ \(2{\Large\frac{1}{3}}\) vi) 5 ÷ \(3{\Large\frac{4}{7}}\)

To divide a fraction, we will find the reciprocal of the second fraction and then multiply the fraction with the reciprocal. If one number is a whole number then we will convert it into a fraction by using 1 as the denominator.

**Solution:**

(i)12 ÷3/4

= 12/1 × 4/3

= (12 × 4)/3

= 48/3

= 16

(ii) 14 ÷ 5/6

= 14/1 × 6/5

= (14 × 6)/5

= 84/5 (improper fraction)

Converting into mixed fraction, we get:

84/5 = \(16{\Large\frac{4}{5}}\)

(iii) 8 ÷ 7/3

= 8/1 × (3/7)

= (8 × 3)/7

= 24/7 (improper fraction)

Converting into mixed fraction, we get

24/7 = \(3{\Large\frac{3}{7}}\)

(iv) 4 ÷ 8/3

= 4/1 × 3/8

= (4 × 3)/8

= 12/8 (By reducing to its lowest term)

= 3/2 (improper fraction)

Converting into mixed fraction, we get

3/2 = \(1{\Large\frac{1}{2}}\)

(v) 3 ÷ \(2{\Large\frac{1}{3}}\)

= 3 ÷ 7/3

= 3/1 × 3/7

= (3 × 3)/7

= 9/7 ( improper fraction )

Converting into mixed fraction, we get

9/7 = \(1{\Large\frac{2}{7}}\)

(vi) 5 ÷ \(3{\Large\frac{4}{7}}\)

= 5 ÷ 25/7

= 5/1 × 7/25 (By simplifying the fraction)

= (5 × 7)/25

= 7/5 (improper fraction)

Converting into mixed fraction, we get

7/5 = \(1{\Large\frac{2}{5}}\)
