There is too much left out there. Invert what? Multiply what by what?

I must assume that the individual was stealing shoes for sexual purposes.

A dizzy spell is the sensation of feeling faint. One feels like one is going to lose one's balance.

let's say, you have

3/4 : 6 =

you invert 3/4 and that will give you 4/3 which you will then mutiple by 6

4/3 x 6 = 8

You have 3/4 : 6 =

You must make the whole number (6) a fraction by placing it over 1 (6/1).
Next you invert it. (1/6)
Then you are ready to multiply. (3/4 x 1/6)
First multiply the nominators. (3x1=3)
Next multiply the denominators. (4x6=24)
Put the product of the nominators over the product of the denominators. (3/24)
Simplify the result if desired. (3/24 = 1/8)
