# 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.
