How do you work out how many thirds are in the whole number 2?

If there are three thirds in one, there must be six thirds in two.

How do you round a fraction to the nearest whole?

You first work out the fraction of the number, Then you figure out to the nearest whole. Like if it was 1\5 of 150 if its 1\5th of 150 - 30 then you round it two the nearest number.

How can i show work for making whole number into fraction?

Given any whole number, x, you can write it as a rational traction in the form x/1. You can then multiply both the numerator and denominator by any non-zero integer to make an equivalent fraction.

What is a fraction equal to two thirds that has a denominator of six?

In a fraction you are looking at parts of a whole, thus if you think of this as a pie and the lower number as the number of pieces the pie has been cut into. the top number of pieces you intend to remove or work with. thus your query of what does 2/3 equal... If you cut each piece of pie into another equal piece then the answer 4/6 is correct. the denominator is the lower number or the total number of pieces that the pie is cut up into. the numerator is the number of pieces you plan to work with or eat...

Is 50 an irrational number?

No. An irrational number isn't a whole number, nor can it be represented exactly as a fraction of two whole numbers. 50 is a whole number, so it's rational. 50/3, while having a repeating decimal, is still rational because it's an exact fraction. The square root of two is irrational because there is no fraction that can exactly represent it. The same goes for pi (although 22/7 is close enough for government work -- jk).

What is the fraction 75 out of 100 reduced in lowest terms?

To find this fraction, you will need to divide the whole fraction by a number. This number must divide 75 into a whole number and 100 into a whole number. So think, what number can divide both 75 and 100? One number is 5. Another is 25. Both work, but let's start with 5:75 divided by 5 = 15100 divided by 5 = 20 So now we have the fraction 15/20. But this is still now in simplest form. We divide the whole fraction by 5 and get 3/4. Now, try putting 75/100 in simplest form using 25 as the divisor for practice.

If you divide a 4-digit number by 1000 will the answer be a whole number?


How can you simplify fraction?

To simplify a fraction, you find a number that can be divided by the fraction you are simplifying. sometimes this does not always work and the fraction can not be simplified.

How do you work out multiplying fractions and whole number as improper and mixes numbers?

When working with mixed numbers it is almost always easier to convert them to improper fractions first, do the whatever (with the improper fraction just like an ordinary fraction) and convert any final improper fraction into a mixed number. To convert a mixed number to an improper fraction, multiply the whole number by the denominator and add the numerator to form the new numerator and keep the denominator the same. For example: 2 3/7 → (2x7+3)/7 = 17/7 To convert an improper fraction to a mixed number divide the numerator by the denominator to get a whole number quotient and a remainder. The whole number quotient is the whole number and the remainder is put as the numerator over the original denominator as the fraction. For example: 17/7 → 17 ÷ 7 = 2 r 3 → 17/7 = 2 3/7

What can you do if the fraction you have can not be easily be converted?

if your numbers arent whole numbers then multiply them out until they are whole numbers that are easier to work with.

How does a fraction work?

A fraction represents a part of a whole. Fractions have two parts, the Numerator (top number) and the Denominator (bottom number). The fraction 3/4 means that you have 3 parts of a whole. The numerator (3) indicates the count of the parts. The denominator (4) indicates the total number of parts. Fractions can also be seen as division problems. The denominator is also called the divisor. The fraction 3/4 can be represented as the decimal 0.75, if you divide 3 by 4. If dividing the numerator by the denominator, the result will always be a decimal.

Why do denominators need to be the same when adding fractions?

The denominator tells you, in effect, what kind of fraction you have, whether it is halves, thirds, quarters, fifths, sixths, and so forth. You can add a group of thirds to another group of thirds and then find out how many thirds you have in total, but if you try to add thirds to quarters, what do you get? Not thirds, and not quarters, but some mix of the two. What is the sum of 2 apples and 3 oranges? Five fruit. This doesn't work for numbers, however. The sum of 1/3 and 1/4 is two fractions, but that doesn't tell you anything, you want a specific number. You can get that by converting them both to twelfths. Then you have 4/12 and 3/12 which adds up to 7/12, an actual number.

How do you mulitply a whole number and fraction?

The best way to multiply a whole number by a fraction is to tackle the problem in two parts. First you multiply the number by the numerator (top) of the fraction. Second you divide the number by the denominator (bottom) of the fraction. For example, if I wanted to work out 25 x 4/10 I would do 25x4, which = 100 Then I would do 100/10, which = 10, so the answer is 10. This is only the mental method though. When writing down on paper you would do this all in one step, as 25 x 4/10 = 10.

What difference does it make if the decimal is placed before or after the number?

If the number is before the decimal, it is a whole number. The numbers after the decimal represent fractions of whole numbers. For example if you had to work 8.5 hours, you would work 8 whole hours plus one half hour.

How do you work out a decimal of number?

If you are trying to work out the decimal form of a fraction, such as 4/5, divide the numerator (top number) by the denominator (bottom number). 4/5 = 0.8

What is the value of a whole number minus a fraction like 1 minus 5 over 12?

The way to figure this out is to convert the whole number into a fraction with the same denominator as the fraction being subtracted. Let's do this one. 1 - (5/12) = (12/12) - (5/12) = At this point, you have 12 over 12 minus 5 over 12, and to work a fraction like that where you have a common denominator, you can take the numerators and subtract them and put the result over 12. It will look like this: (12 - 5) / 12 = 7/12 That 7/12 is your answer. You don't even have to reduce it.

What is 3 1 over 5 as an improper fraction?

3 and 1/5 is 16/5 as an improper fraction. You multiply the whole number by the denominator (3 times 5 equals 15) and then add that number to whatever is already in the numerator (15 plus 1 equals 16) and put that new number over the denominator. 31/5 is already an improper fraction but would work out to 6 and 1/5

How do you work out which fraction is bigger on a calculator?

Type in the top number then press the devide button then type the bottom number, press equals then take note of the decimal given. repeat this for the fraction you wish to compare it to and which ever gives the highest decimal will be the larger fraction.

What are mixed fractions and how do they work?

Mixed Fractions are fractions that have whole numbers and fractions on the side.If you are trying to change them into improper fractions you take the denominator of the fraction and multiply it by the whole number and keep the same numerator. ex.: 2 and one fourth =
