The fractions are when you divide a whole number into equal parts

you don't divide fractions because you can't put a whole number into only part of a number!

if you can divide whole numbers, turn the fraction into a whole number by finding its equivalent and replacing the fraction with that equivalent. Then divide the new number which should be whole and you have your answer.

The same way you calculate averages with whole numbers: Add up all the fractions and divide by the number of fractions there are.

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 :)

first you divide the numerator by whatever number and the denominator by the same number and that is your answer.

It is simple all u really do is divide reguarlly.......

no

I honestly do not know.

Proper fractions can't become whole numbers. Improper fractions can only become whole numbers if the numerator is a multiple of the denominator. To find out, divide the denominator into the numerator. If there is no remainder, it's a whole number.

You simply put the whole number over one making it a fraction then you flip the reciprocal and divide the two fractions insted of multiplying.
