Subject: Extra Credit Geometry Problem

Name: Roger M.
Level: 9-12

I am interested in a solution to the following extra credit problem for my son in Geometry. We have been unable to produce a satisfactory response:

Show a geometric representation of the division of fractions algorithm, (When you divide fractions you multiply the numerator by the reciprocal of the denominator).

Hope you can help out. Thanks

Hi Roger

There is a note in the Resource Room called Understanding Fractions that has a geometric description of the division of fractions procedure. Look in the section of this resource called "Lesson 5- Division of Fractions".
