A simple fraction is a fraction that is a whole number divided by a whole number. Complex fractions can have fractions inside of fractions.

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.

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

There is no whole number in a fraction. A fraction is a little number on top and another little number on the bottom. The numerator is the little number on top.

You never know.-- It could be another fraction . . . 2/5 divided by 7/10 = 4/7-- Or it could be a whole number . . . 16/23 divided by 2/23 = 8-- Or it could be a mixed number . . . 17/25 divided by 4/7 = 1.19-- About the only thing it can never be is zero.

May be a whole number, a mixed number, or another fraction, depending on what the original two fractions are.

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)

There cannot be a whole fraction. If it is a fraction it is not whole and if it is whole it is not a fraction.

If the fraction is simplified then there is no number in the fraction which does so.

Any whole number can be written over 1. To divide a fraction by a whole number, multiply that fraction by one over the whole number. 2/3 divided by 4 = 2/3 x 1/4

It may be a whole number, or it may be another fraction. Examples: 1/2 divided by 1/4 = 2 (whole number) 1/2 divided by 1/3 = 3/2 (a fraction).
