When dividing by a fraction, you 'flip' the fraction and multiply

When you divide by a fraction, you simply invert the fraction and then multiply. 
So:  (4)/(1/4) = 4 x (4/1) = 4 x 4 = 16

(4/1) / (1/4)  (your statement)

Division by a fraction is done by multiplying the dividend by the reciprocal of the divisor, in accordance with the identity.

(4/1) * (4/1)  (follow instructions above)

Final Answer: 16 (simplify)
