To convert a mixed number into an improper fraction, we multiply the whole number by the denominator of the proper fraction and then to the product add the numerator of the fraction to get the numerator of the improper fraction. I
The three types of fractions are : Proper fraction, Improper fraction, Mixed fraction, Proper fraction: Fractions whose numerators are less than the denominators are called proper fractions. (Numerator < denominator). Two parts are shaded in the above diagram.
In 5th Grade Fractions we will discuss about definition of fraction, concept of fractions and different types of examples on fractions. A fraction is a number representing a part of a whole. The whole may be a single object or a group of objects.
In word problems on fraction we will solve different types of problems on multiplication of fractional numbers and division of fractional numbers.
In conversion of improper fractions into mixed fractions, we follow the following steps: Step I: Obtain the improper fraction. Step II: Divide the numerator by the denominator and obtain the quotient and remainder. Step III: Write the mixed fraction
The fractions having the same value are called equivalent fractions. Their numerator and denominator can be different but, they represent the same part of a whole. We can see the shade portion with respect to the whole shape in the figures from (i) to (viii) In; (i) Shaded
To find the difference between like fractions we subtract the smaller numerator from the greater numerator. In subtraction of fractions having the same denominator, we just need to subtract the numerators of the fractions.
Any two like fractions can be compared by comparing their numerators. The fraction with larger numerator is greater than the fraction with smaller numerator, for example \(\frac{7}{13}\) > \(\frac{2}{13}\) because 7 > 2. In comparison of like fractions here are some
In comparison of fractions having the same numerator the following rectangular figures having the same lengths are divided in different parts to show different denominators. 3/10 < 3/5 < 3/4 or 3/4 > 3/5 > 3/10 In the fractions having the same numerator, that fraction is
In worksheet on comparison of like fractions, all grade students can practice the questions on comparison of like fractions. This exercise sheet on comparison of like fractions can be practiced
Like and unlike fractions are the two groups of fractions: (i) 1/5, 3/5, 2/5, 4/5, 6/5 (ii) 3/4, 5/6, 1/3, 4/7, 9/9 In group (i) the denominator of each fraction is 5, i.e., the denominators of the fractions are equal. The fractions with the same denominators are called
Fraction of a whole numbers are explained here with 4 following examples. There are three shapes: (a) circle-shape (b) rectangle-shape and (c) square-shape. Each one is divided into 4 equal parts. One part is shaded, i.e., one-fourth of the shape is shaded and three
In worksheet on fractions, all grade students can practice the questions on fractions on a whole number and also on representation of a fraction. This exercise sheet on fractions can be practiced
In representations of fractions on a number line we can show fractions on a number line. In order to represent 1/2 on the number line, draw the number line and mark a point A to represent 1.
In comparing unlike fractions, we first convert them into like fractions by using the following steps and then compare them. Step I: Obtain the denominators of the fractions and find their LCM (least common multiple). Step II: Each fractions are converted to its equivalent
