In division, the division sign is 'reversed', and becomes a multiplication sign with the reciprocal of the second fraction. For example: $\frac{3}{4}$ $\div$ $\frac{2}{3}$ = $\frac{3}{4}$ $\times$ $\frac{3}{2}$ = $\frac{9}{8}$ Therefore, you should multiply the first fraction by the bottom of the second fraction.
