Answer

$\frac{1}{2}$

Work Step by Step

$\frac{1}{14} \div \frac{1}{7}$ Change division to multiplication. Invert $\frac{1}{7}$ and write its reciprocal. $\frac{1}{14}$ * $\frac{7}{1}$ = $\frac{1*7}{14*1}$ = $\frac{7}{14}$ Since 7 is the greatest common factor of 7 and 14, divide numerator and denominator by 7 $\frac{1*7}{2*7}$ = $\frac{1}{2}$
