Dividing Fractions = Think `1/2`

Whenever you see the word fractions think of  `1/2`


It is easiest to start with a half to multiply fractions 

The fractured (fraction) rock was split in half  (`1/2`)

To remember how to calculate fractions always think of a `1/2` and work it out from there:

To work out a sum think how many halves are in the fraction in question

From this you can use logic and ask yourself how do you get from `1/2 \div1/2` to equal 1

It must be:  `1/2 \times2/1=2/2=1`       

But there is an additional help on dividing by a fraction, see the following page, “Dividing fractions think Kentucky Chicken Fried.”
