Excerpt: ...to equivalent fractions; then multiply al the numerators together for a numerator, and all th- denominators together for a denominator which wil' give the product required I'-., -;, -Vt, DIVISION OF VULGAR FRACTIONS. RULE. Reduce compound fractions to simple ones, and mixed numbers to equivalent fractions; then multiply the numerator of the dividend by the denominator of the divisor, for a new numerator, and the denominator ofl the dividend by the numerator of the divisor, for the denominator; the fractions thus formed will be the answer. EXAMPLES. 1. Divide 4 by J. Thus, 4 numerator of the dividend. 3Xdenominator of the divisor. 12 numerator. Then 7 denominator of the dividend. 2 X numerator of the divisor. 11 denominator Therefore, is the answer. 2. Divide J bv. Thus, 2X4=8. 3X3=9 Wer 3. Divide Jf by i. Ans. f 4-" Tbyf. Ans.-ft, 5.

All the figures on the left of the point are whole numbers; those on the right are fractions. An unit is supposed to be divided into ten equal parts, and the figure at the right of the Ipoint expresses the...show more
