Worksheet on Word Problems on Multiplication of Mixed Fractions
Practice the questions given in the worksheet on word
problems on multiplication of mixed fractions. We know to solve the problems on
multiplying mixed fractions first we need to convert them into improper
fractions and then we multiply as usual.

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 word problems on fraction we will solve different types of problems on multiplication of fractional numbers and division of fractional numbers.
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
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) circleshape (b) rectangleshape and (c) squareshape. Each one is divided into 4 equal parts. One part is shaded, i.e., onefourth of the shape is shaded and three
In worksheet on equivalent fractions, all grade students can practice the questions on equivalent fractions. This exercise sheet on equivalent fractions can be practiced by the students to get more ideas to change the fractions into equivalent fractions.
In worksheet on addition of fractions having the same denominator, all grade students can practice the questions on adding fractions. This exercise sheet on fractions can be practiced by the students to get more ideas how to add fractions with the same denominators.
