# Fraction as divisor - Examples, Exercises and Solutions

A fraction is actually a division exercise! A result obtained from a division exercise is called a quotient and if it is incomplete, it will appear in the form of a fraction.

Remember the rules:
The fraction line - symbolizes the division operation.
The numerator - symbolizes the number that is being divided (the divided number - what needs to be divided equally among all).
The denominator – symbolizes the number that divides the numerator.

## Practice Fraction as divisor

### Exercise #1

My numerator is 4 and my denominator is 8.

Which am I?

### Step-by-Step Solution

Recall that the numerator is the top number, and the denominator is the bottom number.

Now let's represent it accordingly:

$\frac{4}{8}$

Let's divide the numerator and denominator by 4:

$\frac{4:4}{8:4}=\frac{1}{2}$

$\frac{1}{2}$

### Exercise #2

What fraction results from dividing 8 by 16?

### Step-by-Step Solution

Write the exercise translation:

$8:16$

Now write it in the form of a simple fraction, remembering that the numerator is above and the denominator is below:

$\frac{8}{16}$

Divide the numerator and denominator by the number that divides both of them, in this case the number is 8:

$\frac{8:8}{16:8}=\frac{1}{2}$

$\frac{1}{2}$

### Exercise #3
