Yes. If you mean dividing a whole number INTO a fraction here is how you do it. Take the whole number and write it as a fraction where the whole number is the numerator (top part of the fraction) and the number "1" is the denominator (the bottom part of the fraction). Now, turn that fraction upsides down so that the "1" is on top and the whole number is on the bottom. Multiply the numerator of the original fraction times the "1" giving you the original numerator as the new numerator. Multiply the whole number times the original denominator giving you the new denominator. If you means dividing the fraction into the whole number it is similar. Write the whole number as a fraction (as above) with 1 in the denominator. Then flip the fraction over and multiply the two numerators, the two denominators and you have your answer.

It is the first whole number divided by the denominator of the unit fraction. This could be a whole number or a fraction.

A simple fraction is a fraction that is a whole number divided by a whole number. Complex fractions can have fractions inside of fractions.

It would be an improper fraction.

a whole number is a number is a number that isn't divided or isn't a fraction

You simply multiply the whole number by the denominator. A whole number divided by a fraction is the whole number times the inverse of the fraction. For example, 8 divided by 1/4 is 8 times 4 = 32.

a smaller fraction! eg 3/4 divided by 5 = 3/20

May be a whole number, a mixed number, or another fraction, depending on what the original two fractions are.

There cannot be a whole fraction. If it is a fraction it is not whole and if it is whole it is not a fraction.

The DenominatorThe denominator in a fraction, is the bottoms part of a fraction. In other words it indicates what a whole fraction is divided in, e.g (4 is the bottom number in 1/4 so the whole will be divided in quarters)The NumeratorThe Numerator in a fraction, is the top part of a fraction. It tells you how many bits the the whole is divided in, e.g (2 is the top number in 2/5 so the whole is divided in 2 of the 5ths)

In order to subtract a fraction from a whole number one should take the bottom number from a fraction, for example if the fraction was 1 10th then the bottom number would be 10. The whole number should be divided by the bottom number, then the top number equivalent removed from the total whole number and this will leave the fraction number once the fraction has been subtracted.

If the fraction is simplified then there is no number in the fraction which does so.

no no no that is not what they were asking you would divide a whole number by a fraction by putting the whole number over one making it an improper fraction then divide those as you would regular fractions ........ hope it helped :)
