If the answer keys do not provide sufficient help to illustrate the concepts needed for dividing fractions, please make use of the fraction calculator. It will break down the steps in more detail and help you master fraction division in no time!
A Fraction is a part of a whole or a unit, for eg. A piece of a whole cake (1⁄2 of 1 cake). A simple fraction consists of two parts, a Numerator and a Denominator.
To multiply fractions, first convert any mixed fractions to improper fractions. Then, multiply the numerators across to get the answer numerator. Do the same thing for the denominators, multiplying the two values across to get the answer fraction s denominator. Reduce, and if the answer is improper, turn it into a mixed fraction.
The worksheets on this page have various types of practice for multiplying fractions. Included are problems that focus on cross-cancelling which is a skill that greatly simplifies the process of reducing fractions in the answer step. Cross cancelling prior to multiplying fractions results in much smaller products which are significantly easier to reduce and turn into proper fractions.
