Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question!

step 1: convert mixed number to fraction 

for example (2 3/4) / (4 2/4)

convert 2 3/4 to 11/4 and 4 2/4 to 18/4 

step 2

Invert the divider and change / to x 

(11/4)/(18/4) = 11/4 x 4/18 

step 3 

Simplify the expression by eliminating the common factors  

11/4x 4/18 = 11/18
