\(2\frac{3}{12}\div1\frac1{12} \)

 

Convert the mixed numbers into improper fractions.

\(=\frac{27}{12}\div\frac{13}{12}\)

 

Keep the first fraction, change the operation from division to multiplication, flip the second fraction.

\(=\frac{27}{12}*\frac{12}{13}\)

 

Multiply the fractions and reduce.

\(=\frac{27*12}{12*13} \\~\\ =\frac{27}{13}\)

 

As a mixed number, this is   \(2\frac1{13}\)
