Here is my fractions video :)
Sorry...Brianna and I were very hyper that day. But we got the message across. Now let's do some more questions!
The simplest way to solve this (in my opinion) is to change the whole number into a fraction and then just multiply. To change any whole number into a fraction all you have to do is put 1 as your denominator.
Our new equation:
Now we multiply the numerators by each other, and the denominators by each other.
Our product is now 4/2. To simplify you divide the numerator by the denominator.
4 divided by 2=2
Another way to solve this problem is by using diagrams/pictures.
Now that we have covered multiplication, let's move on to division!
Now, let's try out what we have learned with a word problem. :)
1 x 7 = 7
7 + 3 = 10
Improper fraction = 10/ 7
3 x 5 =15
15 + 2 = 17
Improper fraction = 17/ 5
10/7 x 17/5
10 x 17 = 170
7 x 5 = 35
170 divided by 35 = 4 6/7
