#### Worksheet Overview

In this activity, we will be learning how to multiply mixed numbers by whole numbers.

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 try an example question using this diagram.

Example

Multiply one and 1/4 by 4.

This will give 4 lots of one and 4 lots of 1/4.

1 + 1 + 1 + 1 = 4

1/4 + 1/4 + 1/4 + 1/4 = 4/4

4 and  4/4 is the same as 5 wholes.

4 x 1 and 1/4 = 5.

We could also do the same calculation without the diagram.

4 x 1 1/4.

First of all, you need to multiply the whole numbers.

4 x 1 = 4

Next, multiply the fraction.

4 x 1⁄4 = 4/4 which equals 1

Now it's your turn to try some of these yourself.
