  # Multiplying Mixed Numbers by Whole Numbers

In this worksheet, students use diagrams to multiply mixed numbers by whole numbers. Answers may involve mixed numbers. Key stage:  KS 2

Curriculum topic:   Number: Fractions, Decimals and Percentages

Curriculum subtopic:   Multiply Fractions

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
