When you divide by , you are working out how many s there are in .

, so there are five s in .

In a similar way, when dividing by , you are working out how many s there are in .

There are four s in , so:

If you divide by you are working out how many s there are in .

There are six s in , so:

Do you see a pattern? Let's write out those calculations a different way.

- and , so is the same as
- , so is the same as

So, ' ' is the same as ā ā.

and ' ' is the same as ā ā.

To divide fractions, turn the second fraction upside down, then multiply.
