The following worksheets teach your students how to divide the number one by different fractions.

The concept here is to introduce students to the idea of taking parts of whole. In this case, seeing how a fraction can be divided into a single integer. The lesson describes it best when we look at how many times three-eighths could go into one. We use a pie diagram that is cut into eighths to display this. In most cases you are going to end up with a solution that is a mixed number. We will focus the use of the integer value of one, since this is the most common value people use in their mind.

How do you divide fractions into whole numbers? Isolating divisions by an entire number isn't as hard as it looks. To separate a portion by an entire number, you should simply change over the entire number into a part, locate the proportionality of that division, and duplicate the outcome by the main division. If you need to realize how to do it, simply follow these means: The initial step to partitioning a portion by an entire number is to just work out the part followed by the division sign and the entire number you have to separate it by. To change an entire number into a small amount, you should simply put the number over the number 1. The entire number turns into the numerator, and one turns into the denominator of the portion. Partitioning a division by another portion is equivalent to duplicating that portion by the equal of the other division. To locate the complementary of a number, basically switch the numerator and the denominator of the number. Change the division sign into a duplication sign. Duplicate the numerators and denominators of the portions. Simplify the fraction. These worksheets explains how to divide fractions and express the action as a division sentence. Please note that all answers will be in the form of mixed numbers.

A Quick Word On This Skill

Dividing fractions by a whole numbers are quite easy. You will need to change the whole number, multiply the answer by the first fraction, and find the reciprocal of that fraction. You do this to divide a fraction by a whole number. Also, you should implement the following steps for this. Write the problem – We will write the fraction that we will consider it as a sign of division and then, we will mention the whole number that you require to divide it by. Mathematically, the problem will be 2/3 divided by 4. Changing the whole number into a fraction – You will have to place the number over 1. The numerator will be whole number and denominator will become 1. The value 4/1 is really as the same saying 4. It happens when you show the number includes 1 four times. The problem will be 2/3 divided by 4/1. You can divide fraction by another fraction. It is the same as multiplying the fraction by the reciprocal of the other fraction. You will get the value ¼ by shifting the denominator and numerator. Convert division sign into multiplication sign. Then, multiply the numerator and denominator to get the following answer. 2/3 × 1/4 = 2/12. Then, we will simplify the fraction and get the final answer that is 1/6.
