The same way you divide fractions is the same way you divide improper fractions. When you divide two improper fractions, take the second fraction and flip it. After you flip it, you multiply the one improper fraction and the fraction. If needed, reduce or put the answer in lowest terms. For example, 5/6 divided by 4/3. After you flip the second number, the problem will now be 5/6 multiplied by 3/4. 5/6 multiplied by 3/4 is 15/24. Then put 15/24 in lowest terms or reduce it and you get 5/8. 5/8 is your answer.
