    56/11 DIVIDED by 4

    This is EASY because you are dividing by a whole number !

    You do this by MULTIPLYING the 11 by 4

    56/44 .... which is 14/11 .... which is 1 3/11

    You want to divide a fraction by an integer, so:

    (56/11) / 4

    Division is the same as the multiplication of the reciprocal, so:

    (56/11) (1/4)

    Now multiply the fractions. 4 is a factor of 56 so that cancels out to leave:

    14/11

    Really??? Use a calculator. Convert the fraction to a number and then divide that number by 4. I guess 2nd grade math is hard for you.

    Best wishes

      Using a calculator will give you the answer as a decimal and WON'T teach you how to divide fractions !
