Question

How will we divide 1 by any mixed fraction?


Solution

Suppose 
1 ÷ 2(1/4)

So now we will convert 2(1/4) into numerator and denominator

Formula : (whole no. X denominatortor + numerator) / original denominator
 
So ,    2x4+1 / 4
           8+1 / 4
           9/4

Now,   1 ÷  9/4
        In fraction division we take reciprocal of the no. To the very last right corner and the division sign changes to multiplication sign

So now ,  1  x  4/9 
               Now by doing cross multiplication

We get ,   9 /  4

So hence by this calculation we get that any mixed fraction divided by 1 will always be the same fraction itself
