What we are trying to calculate here is 12/17 divided by 4/6. Let's break it down:

- For the first fraction (12/17), 12 is our numerator and 17 is our denominator.
- Similarly, in the second fraction (4/6), 4 is the numerator and 6 is the denominator.

Dividing fractions involves turning the divisor (the second fraction) upside down (this is called its reciprocal) then multiplying. The method to divide fractions can be done in three steps:

- Multiply the first fraction by the reciprocal of the second fraction.
- Always reduce the fraction to its simplest form.
- Divide the numerator by the denominator to get the answer in decimal form.

12/17 divided by 4/6 \(= \frac{12}{17} \times \frac{6}{4}\) \(= \frac{72}{68}\) (after multiplication) \(= \frac{18}{17}\) (in the simplest form) And in decimal form = 1.059

So, 12/17 divided by 4/6 equals 1.059 in decimal form and it is 18/17 in fraction form.
