Difficulty level:   #### Worksheet Overview

Look at this diagram, which shows two and one fifth of a rectangle shaded.

That's 2 whole rectangles and one fifth of a rectangle.   Let's multiply two and one fifth by 3.

This will give 3 lots of two and one fifth.

 2 1 + 2 1 + 2 1 = 6 3 5 5 5 5

This gives 6 wholes and three-fifths shaded as shown.       So

 3 × 2 1 = 6 3 5 5
