    There is an old saying:

    To divide, invert and multiply!

    1/2 / (1/12)

    invert and multiply

    1/2 x 12/1 = 12/2 = 6

    tada!

    ===

    This works with formulas, equations, variables, fractions, etc...

    If you are dividing a number by a fraction

    you turn the fraction upside down and multiply.

    So .. 1/2 divided by 1/12 becomes .. 1/2 multiplied by 12/1

    (1 x 12 = 12 .. and .. 2 x 1 = 2)

    So .. 1/2 x 12/1 = 12/2

    which is 6

    1/2 -:- 1/12

    To divide a fraction by a fraction, turn the second one upside down and multiply

    = 1/2 x 12/1

    = 12/2

    = 6
