Do you just multiply by the reciprocal? For example 2/3 divided by 3/8 would be 2/3 times 8/3 equalling 16/9? Does that even make sense? lol Ugh, 7th grade math! TIA

Dividing Proper/Improper Fractions
dividend ¸ divisor = quotient
1. Change mixed numbers to improper fractions.
2. Change the dividing sign to multiply and flipflop (take the reciprocal of) the divisor.
3. Multiply the numerators and multiply the denominators
4. Change to mixed numbers if necessary.
5. Reduce to lowest terms.
