**Example 1**

And from multiplication of fractions we know that

`1/2 \times2/1=(1times2)/(2times1)=2/2=1`

**Example 2**

Work out `3/4\div1/3`

And from multiplication of a fraction we know that

`3/4\times3/1=(3\times3)/(4times1)=9/4=2\1/4`

**Example 3**

Work out `1\3/4\div2\1/2`

This means work out `7/4\div5/2`

And from multiplication of a fraction we know that

`7/4\times2/5=(7times2)/(4times5)=14/20=7/10`
