**Division sign**

A division sign is frequently displayed between 2 rational numbers & it shows that the first rational number needs to divide by the second rational number.

**Closure Property of Division of Rational Numbers**

Rational Numbers are closed under Division except for 0. Consider 2 rational numbers a/b, c/d where c/d ≠ 0, (a/b ÷ c/d) is also a Rational Number.

For instance: 2/3 ÷ 4/5 = 2/3 x 5/4

= (2 x 5) / 3 x 4

= 10/12

Thus, 2/3 ÷ 4/5 & 10/12 is also a Rational Number.

**Commutative Property of Division of Rational Numbers**

Division of Rational Numbers is not commutative. Assume 2 rational number a/b, c/d then a/b ÷ c/d ≠ c/d ÷ a/b

For instance:

1/4 ÷ 3/2 = 1/4 x 2/3

= 1 x 2/4 x 3 = 2/12

= 1/6

3/2 ÷ 1/4 = 3/2 x 4/1

= 3 x 4/2 x 1 = 12/2

= 6

Thus, 1/4 ÷ 3/2 ≠ 3/2 ÷ 1/4

Therefore, Commutative Property is not appropriate for Division.

**Associative Property of Division of Rational Numbers**

Generally, the Division of Rational Numbers does not follow the Associative Property. Assume a/b, c/d, e/f be 3 Rational Numbers then a/b ÷ (c/d ÷ e/f) ≠ (a/b ÷ c/d) ÷ e/f

For instance:

2/5 ÷ (4/5 ÷ 1/9)

= 2/5 ÷ (4/5 x 9/1) = 2/5 ÷ (36/5) = 2/5 x 5/36

= 2 x 5/5 x 36 = 10/180 = 1/18

(2/5÷4/5) ÷ 1/9

= (2/5 x 5/4) ÷ 1/9 = (2 x 5/5 x 4) ÷ 1/9

= 10/20 ÷ 1/9 = 10/20 x 9/1

= 10 x 9/20 x 1 = 90/20 = 9/2

Therefore, 2/5 ÷ (4/5 ÷ 1/9) ≠ (2/5 ÷ 4/5) ÷ 1/9

**Property of 1 of Division of Rational Numbers**

For every rational number a/b, we can have (a/b ÷ 1) = a/b

For instance: 12/5 ÷ 1 = 12/5

Property 1

For any non zero rational number a/b, we can have (a/b ÷ a/b) = 1

For instance: 3/4 ÷ 3/4

= 3/4 x 4/3

= 3 x 4/4 x 3

= 12/12 =1
