#### Worksheet Overview

In this activity, we will be multiplying 1/4 by whole numbers and then writing the number of quarters in different ways.

Example

Work out

9  ×
 1 4
=

Use these nine quarter apples to help.

We can make two whole apples and a spare quarter.

We can write the answer like this:

9 ×
 1 4
=
 9 4
= 2
 1 4

= two and a quarter

When we divide 9 by 4, the answer is 2 1/4. The 1 is the remainder and the 4 is the divisor.

Remember also that two quarters make a half.

Right, let's have a go at some questions!
