  # Multiply Mixed Numbers by Whole Numbers

In this worksheet, students will be asked to multiply mixed numbers by whole numbers. Key stage:  KS 2

Curriculum topic:   Number: Fractions, Decimals and Percentages

Curriculum subtopic:   Multiply Fractions

Difficulty level:   #### Worksheet Overview

Look at the diagram below which shows one and 1/4 of a rectangle shaded.

That is one whole rectangle and 1⁄4 of a rectangle.  Let's multiply one and 1/4 by 4.

This will give 4 lots of one and 1⁄4.

1 1/4+ 1 1/4 + 1 1/4 + 1 1/4 = 4 4/4

4 4/4 is the same as 5 wholes.

This is shown by the diagrams below.     4 x 1 and 1/4 = 5.
