$$2\frac{3}{12}\div1\frac1{12}$$

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   $$2\frac1{13}$$
