Simplify each expression.

1. $\frac { 12 } { 5 } \div \frac { 7 } { 10 }$

• Remember, when you divide by a fraction it is the same as multiplying by its reciprocal.

$\frac{12}{5}\left(\frac{10}{7}\right)$

$3 \frac{3}{7}$

1. $\frac { 9 } { 4 } \div ( - \frac { 1 } { 3 } )$

See part (a).

$\frac{9}{4}\left(-\frac{3}{1}\right)$

$-6\frac{3}{4}$

1. $- \frac { 3 } { 5 } \div ( - \frac { 1 } { 6 } )$

See part (a).

$3\frac{3}{5}$
