1/2x^2 + 1/8y^2 = 1/4

i'm a little confused on how to clear the fraction and set the equation up to make it equal 1.

I tried to divide everything by 4 to clear it but 8 cant divide into 4 and if I use a higher number than 4 the equation wont equal 1. when the fractions are cleared the equation should be in the form of x^2/a^2 + y^2/b^2 = 1 if the equation is horizontal or x^2/b^2 + y^2/a^2 = 1 if it is vertical.

Can someone help me clear the fractions?
