round the fraction to the nearest whole number, then times the two whole number together

Convert the mixed fraction to an improper fraction, multiply by the whole number, convert the answer back to a mixed fraction (if required).

It means how many times you can subtract the whole number from the fraction before you reach zero. Assuming you've not got a mixed fraction, the whole number will only be able to be subtracted a fractional number of times.

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.

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.

A decimal, in this context, is a useless description: a decimal can be an integer, a rational number or an irrational number. Furthermore, a whole number times a decimal fraction can be a whole number, a rational number or an irrational number.For example:4 * 3.5 = 14 is a whole number times a decimal fraction = whole number.4 * 3.3 = 13.2 is a whole number times a decimal fraction = rational fraction.4 * 3.14159... [ie pi in decimal form] = 4 * pi, which is an irrational number.

The answer can be another fraction and a whole number or it can be a whole number.

a fraction cannot be a whole number

When multiplying a fraction by a whole number, you should rewrite the whole number as a fraction. Do this by placing the number over a denominator of one.

The numerator of the fraction is multiplied by the whole number.

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

You can make any whole number into a fraction by putting it over 1.

Any fraction can be multiplied by a whole number so that the product is a whole number. Simply multiply the fraction (in rational form) by its denominator.

how to write 6/9 as a product of a whole number and a unit fraction.

It is often a fraction but can be a mixed or whole number.

Convert the whole number to a fraction by putting it over 1. Multiply the two fractions by doing the numerator*numerator (top times top) and denominator*denominator (bottom times bottom).

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.

An improper fraction is made up of a whole number and a fraction. For example, 1 3/4. 1 is the whole number and 3/4 is the fraction.

you have to make the whole number into a fraction with the same denominator.

A number containing a whole number and a fraction is called a mixed number.

Any whole number can be converted to a fraction by putting it over 1.

When multiplying a fraction by a whole number you would rewrite it as a mixed number or convert the whole number to that number over one!

Any whole number into a fraction is whole number over 1. Whole number = x Fraction = x/1

A mixed number is made up of a whole number and a fraction.

The recommended method in schools is to write the whole number as a rational fraction with denominator 1, and then proceed as you would for subtracting one fraction from another fraction.
