Page 590 - X %= % Hence for the division of one fraction by another the usual rule again results, as follows: Rule. — Invert the terms of the divisor and proceed as in multiplication. This might naturally be expected by remembering the relation between multiplication and division, and that one is the exact inverse of the other. For the multiplication of a series of fractions into each other these principles work out as follows : ',6 X % X % X % means that % is first considered as a subject and % as an operator.
