Hi Jaeden;
Welcome to Wyzant Answers!!!
 
    12
    7     
    3
 
We are going to take the denominator, also known as the divisor, of 3, and convert it to 1/3.
(12/7)(1/3)=12/21
Both 12 and 21 can be divided by 3...
4/7
 
Can you visualize what happened?
12/7
To establish the value of 1/3rd of 12/7, 12 becomes 4 while 7 remains 7.
