### QUESTION 1 of 10

In this worksheet, we will practise dividing a whole number by a fraction.

Method (TURN then TIMES)

First invert (turn upside down) the fraction, then multiply.

Examples

Divide 15 by
 5 6

This is the same as 15 ×
 6 5
= (15 &div; 5) × 6 = 18

Remember that when you are multiplying an integer by a fraction, you need to divide by the denominator and then multiply by the numerator.

Divide 32 by
 8 11
= 32 ×
 11 8
= 4 × 11 = 44
