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

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

It would be an improper fraction.

a whole number is a number is a number that isn't divided or isn't a fraction

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.

a smaller fraction! eg 3/4 divided by 5 = 3/20

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.

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 :)
