Paano mag-divide ng fractions?

This video is a tutorial in mixed Tagalog and English on how to divide fractions. The idea in dividing fractions is to get the reciprocal of the divisor. This is because dividing a by b for b not equal to zero is the same as multiplying a by the reciprocal of b. That is,

\frac{a}{b} is the same as a(\frac{1}{b}).

Now the reciprocal of the fraction \frac{p}{q}$ is

\displaystyle \frac{1}{\frac{p}{q}} = \frac{q}{p}

That is the reason why we exchange the numerator and denominator of the fraction.
