Dividing Fractions by Fractions
Grade 6 Math Worksheets
We know that division is a strategy for distributing equitably and forming equal groupings. To obtain the quotient, we divide a whole integer by the divisor.
Now, multiplying a fraction by the reciprocal of the second fraction is equivalent to dividing it by another fraction. A straightforward method for switching the numerator and denominator of a fraction is to find its reciprocal.

Order of Operations Solved Examples:
Example 1: Solve: 2 + 6 × (4 + 5) ÷ 3 – 5 using PEMDAS.
Step 1 – Parentheses : 2+6 × (4 + 5) ÷ 3 – 5 = 2 + 6 × 9 ÷ 3 – 5
Step 2 – Multiplication: 2 + 6 × 9 ÷ 3 – 5 = 2 + 54 ÷ 3 – 5
Step 3 – Division: 2 + 54 ÷ 3 – 5 = 2 + 18 – 5
Step 4 – Addition: 2 + 18 – 5 = 20 – 5
Step 5 – Subtraction: 20 – 5 = 15
Order of Operations Practice Problems:
- Solve 100 ÷ (6 + 7 × 2) – 5 using PEMDAS.
- Solve 600 ÷ (44 + 14 × 4) – 5 using PEMDAS.
