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.

What is a denominator on 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)

How do you subtract a fraction from a whole number?

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.
