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!

It is easiest to put decimals into fraction form by multiplying them by 10 until we have a whole number, then putting the amount we multiplied by as the denominator. In this case we get 6027/1000

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.

Adding and subtracting fractions can ONLY be done if the denominators are the same; then the calculation is done by adding or subtracting the numerators. Multiplying (and dividing) fractions does not require the denominators to be the same. To divide by a fraction the divisor is inverted (the original numerator becomes the new denominator and the original denominator becomes the new numerator) and then the fractions are multiplied. Multiplying fractions is achieved by multiplying the numerators together AND multiplying the denominators together. A whole number is the same as a fraction with the whole number as the numerator and a denominator of 1, so when multiplying by a whole number the denominator is multiplied by 1 (leaving it the same) and the is multiplication is effectively just multiplying the numerator by the whole number.

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.

it will equal whatever number you multiplied it by

It is a division

No, you don't.

You will get a number - whole or fraction - whose magnitude will be smaller than the original.

A general rule for multiplying fractions: You shall not multiply the denominator by the whole number,only the numerator.Another rule is you shall make the whole number as a fraction by putting the whole number as the numerator and 1 as the denominator before multiplying it.

greater than

It will increase.

It will increase.

It increases the value.

It decreases.

The answer is the whole number multiplied by the denominator of the fraction.n / (1/m) = n*m

You multiply the denominator by the whole number, then you add what you got from multiplying the denominator by the whole number by the numerator! An example:13/4 would equal 7/4 as a improper fraction!

by multiplying the denominator with the whole number and adding the numerator. the denominator will remain the same.

Multiplying by percentage is easy. All you have to do is convert the percentage into a fraction and then into a whole number.

The value of the fraction is 1.

In that case, the product will be the same as the original number.

the answer is smaller than the whole number because you're taking a fraction of the second number. it's like multiplying by a decimal.

Dividing a decimal by a whole number is the same as multiplying the decimal by the whole number's reciprocal. Convert that fraction to its decimal equivalent and proceed.

any number you wnat could be 5 * 6 or 7 * 8 multiplying is the same thing as finding the product

The one where the denominator is the same and the numerator is the whole number multiplied by the denominator plus the numerator of the fraction.
