DIVIDING FRACTIONS

Dividing fractions requires you to invert the divisor.
For example   3/4  4/5  is done  as follows  3/4  x  5/4. The divisor 4/5 is inverted to 5/4 and the division problem  is changed to a multiplication problem.
So the problem is now  3/4  x  5/4  =  15/16

Try this problem  7/8    4/5    answer
