...cancel its denominator, and then we divide the dividend by the numerator of the divisor. Or, simply, we **multiply the numerator of the dividend by the denominator of the divisor for a new numerator, and** multiply the denominator of the dividend by the numerator of the divisor for a new denominator. Therefore,... | |
