In this activity, we will be changing quantities into fractions, following a few simple rules.

What is **5 minutes as a fraction of one hour**?

First, we need to make the units the same.

We need to work out how many minutes there are in 1 hour.

There are 60 minutes in one hour.

As a fraction, we would write this as:** 5/60**

Let's try another.

Write **12 metres as a fraction of 1 km**.

Again, first, we need to make sure the units are the same.

There are 1,000 m in 1 km.

As a fraction, we would write this as: **12/1,000**

How do you feel about all that? Confident?!

Let's try some questions.
