A complex fraction, also called a "double" fraction, is the quotient of two quotients, or two fractions on top of each other. To simplify them, we need to make sure the top and bottom are both just single fractions (this might require some common denominator work first). Then we leave the top fraction the same, multiply by the reciprocal of the bottom fraction, and simplify.
