## Divide Mixed Numbers

### Divide Mixed Numbers: Learn

Mixed numbers consist of an integer followed by a fraction. To Divide Mixed Numbers:

• Convert each mixed number to an improper fraction.
• Invert the divisor (take its reciprocal).
• Multiply the two numerators together.
• Multiply the two denominators together.
• Convert the result back to a mixed number if it is an improper fraction.
• Simplify the result.

Example: 6 2/8 ÷ 3 5/9

6
2
8
÷

That last step can be tough, simplifying a fraction with big numbers. To keep the numbers small and easy to work with, you can cancel factors just before multiplying.

In the example above, that would mean canceling a factor of 2 out of both the 50 and the 32 just before multiplying.
