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

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.
