a trick for dividing with fractions:

1/2 times the inverse of 7

1 times 1 is 1

2 times 7 is 14

In fraction form, your expression looks like this:

 

\(\frac{\frac{1}{2}}{7}\)

 

To do this, we will have to utilize a rule with fractions. It states that \(\frac{\frac{a}{b}}{c}=\frac{a}{bc}\). Applying this fraction rule alone is enough to solve this problem.
 

\(\frac{\frac{1}{2}}{7}=\frac{1}{2*7}=\frac{1}{14}=0.0\overline{714285}\)

Dividing by a number means multiplying the reciprocal of the number.

So 1/2 divided by 7 = 1/2 x 1/7 = 1/(2x7) = 1/14
