Thank you for the opportunity to help you with your question! IF you have any clarification, please don't hesitate to ask and I will do my best to answer. ++++++++++++

We know that dividing fractions is similar to multiplying fractions.

To illustrate, let’s divide 3/5 by  2/9

1.  Turn the second fraction, 2/9, upside down. This upside down version is called the reciprocal

2/9 => 9/2

2.  Multiply the first fraction by the reciprocal of the second fraction

3 x 9  = 3 x 9 = 27

5     2     5 x 2  10

3.  Simplify the resulting fraction if there is a need

27 = 20 + 7 = 2   7

10    10   10       10


Please let me know if you need any clarification. I'm always happy to answer your questions.
