### I need help with Multiplying & Dividing Fractions???

I could really use some help with multiplying and dividing fractions. It has been a very long time since I was in school and I cannot recall the way I was taught to solve these problems. My daughter is needing help so if someone can show me how to work out these two problems I'm hoping I'll remember how to do them.   2/7 divided by 3/3 3/1 x 4/6 Thanks for reading my post.

Good Day,
How is everything with you, I picked interest on you after going through your short profile and deemed it necessary to write you immediately. I have something very to you, but I found it difficult to express myself here, since vital to disclose it's a public site.Could you please get back to me on:(abiolabawuah53@gmail.com ) for full details.
Have a wonderful day

Thanks God bless.

# Math Limerick

Question: Why is this a mathematical limerick?

( (12 + 144 + 20 + 3 Sqrt[4]) / 7 ) + 5*11 = 92 + 0 .

A dozen, a gross, and a score,
plus three times the square root of four, divided by seven, plus five times eleven, is nine squared and not a bit more.

---Jon Saxton (math textbook author)

Presentation Suggestions:
Challenge students to invent their own math limerick!

The Math Behind the Fact:
It is fun to mix mathematics with poetry.

Resources:
