### Isaac's Scribe Post

Hello, this is Isaac.

Today I'm going to be talking about dividing fractions.

Dividing fractions is almost the same as multiplying fractions.
To divide fractions, you need to know what a Reciprocal is.

To get a Reciprocal, you just have to divide the fraction by one.

For example, the reciprocal of 2 is 1/2.
The reciprocal of 7 is 1/7.
See?
All the reciprocal is, is making the number equal 1!

So know that we know what a reciprocal is, we can start answering some questions.

One of the questions that Mr. Harbeck gave us was 7 divided by 1/3. So first we make 7 a fraction.

Then we make the reciprocals.

There you have it, THE ANSWER!!!!!!!

Oh, here is a video I made to help with dividing fractions

1. How you colour coded everything made it easier to understand which part is which and where it belongs. It was also nice how you made your own video! Nice.
