##### We want to get the quotient of the following 2 fractions:

 45 2
 ÷
 1 8

Let's take our 2 fractions and divide:

 a b
 ÷
 c d

Multiply by the reciprocal

 a x d b x c

a = 45,
b = 2,
c = 1,
d = 8, so we have:

 45 x 8 2 x 1

 360 2

##### Reduce our fraction

GCF(360 and 2) = 2

##### Reduce the numerator by GCF

(1/2) x 360 = 180

##### Reduce the denominator by GCF

(1/2) x 2 = 1

Since our reduced answer is a whole number, we remove the one from the denominator and write it as:

### What 8 formulas are used for the Fractions and Mixed Numbers Calculator?

a/c + b/c = (a + b)/c
a/c - b/c = (a - b)/c
a/c * b/c = ab/c * c
Reciprocal of a/b = b/a
