**How to divide fractions?**

Paano maghati ng hating-bilang (praksyon)?

There are 3 simple steps in dividing fractions:

*Mayroong 3 simpleng hakbang sa paghahati ng praksyon:*Halimbawa:

1)Turn the second fraction

*(the one you want to divide by)*upside-down or get its

**reciprocal**.

**Baliktarin ang ikalawang praksyon o kunin ang reciprocal (kabalikan) nito.**The reciprocal of a number is a number which when multiplied together, the product is always 1.

**Ang reciprocal o kabalikan ng isang bilang ay ang bilang kung saan kapag minultiply mo silang dalawa, ang makukuhang sagot ay laging isa (1).**Example:

What is the reciprocal of 1/2? The reciprocal of 1/2 is 2. Why? 1/2 x 2 = 1

What is the reciprocal of 3/4? The reciprocal of 3/4 is 4/3. Why? 3/4 x 4/3 = 1

2)

**Multiply**the first fraction by that reciprocal.**I-multiply ang unang praksyon sa nakuhang reciprocal ng ikalawang praksyon.**
3) Simplify the fraction (if needed). Gawing simple ang praksyon (kung kailangan).

To simplify the fraction, find its

**Greatest Common Factor (GCF)**and divide both the numerator and denominator by this GCF.

**Para maging simple ang praksyon, hanapin ang Pinakamalaking Parehong Factor nito at idivide ang numerator at denominator ng GCF na ito.**

What are the factors of 15 and 28?

Ang factors ng 15 ay 1, 3 , 5 at 15 dahil 1 x15 = 15 at 3 x 5 = 15

Ang factors ng 28 ay 1, 2, 14 at 28 dahil 1 x 28 = 28 at 2 x 14 = 28.

**Makikita sa itaas na ang GCF ng 15 at 28 ay 1. Dahil hindi naman mababago ang porma ng 15/28 kapag**

*dinivide sa 1, masasabing simple na ang sagot na***15/28.**
