Once students have a basic familiarity with fractions, the next step is to understand how to compare fractions. Sometimes the concept of denominators takes a little time to grasp. Often students will confuse a larger denominator with a larger value for the fraction, when in reality the numerator, not the denominator, expressed the actual value being represented. The size of the numerator relative to the denominator is what ultimately describes the actual value of the fraction.

Like the other worksheet sets, these dividing fractions worksheets come in varying levels of difficulty. There are problems that are designed to exercise your cross-cancelling skills, and the answer keys on these worksheets provide detailed breakdowns of how the cross-cancelling works for each problem. Other worksheets include problems with mixed fractions (whole values).

In the simplest cases, the two fractions will already have a common denominator. In this case, add the numerators and then reduce the resulting fraction.
