Work Step by Step

To solve this, you must first make both the mixed numbers improper fractions. So 8 1/2 turns into 17/2, and 4 1/4 turns into 17/4. Now since this is a division problem, you need to find the reciprocal of the divisor, which is 4/17. Now multiply 17/2 with 4/17. You should get 68/34, which can be rewritten/reduced to 2.
