Solution

VerifiedStep 1

1 of 2Determine the quotient of the fraction in simplest form.

$\begin{align*} \dfrac {1}{8} \div \dfrac {1}{2} & = \dfrac {1}{8} \times \dfrac {2}{1} && {\text {multiply the dividend by the reciprocal of the divisor}} \\ & = \dfrac {1 \times 2}{8 \times 1} && {\text {multiply both numerators and both denominators}} \\ & = \dfrac {2}{8} && {\text {simplify by dividing the fraction by its GCF of 2}} \\ & = \dfrac {1}{4} && {\text {quotient}} \end{align*}$

Check by multiplying the quotient by the divisor.

$\dfrac {1}{4} \times \dfrac {1}{2} = \dfrac {1}{8}$
