Steps to Divide Fractions by Whole Number 

The idea of reciprocal should be understood to divide fractions by whole numbers. Follow the instructions below to divide fractions by whole numbers:

Step 1 :  Write the division fact as the dividend divisor, where the dividend is the supplied fraction and the divisor is the given whole number.

Step 2: Write the reciprocal of the divisor (the whole number) and change the division sign to a multiplication symbol.

Step 3: Multiply the numerator by the numerator and the denominator by the denominator to find the product. That will be the necessary response.

As an illustration, divide 1/9 by 7.

Step 1: 1/9 ÷ 7

Step 2: 1/91/7 (Reciprocal of Divisor 7 is 1/7)

Step 3: 1/9 × 1/7= 1/63

Therefore, 1/97= 63
