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

The method we're going to use is KFC

No, not the takeaway chicken - something much better!

KFC stands for **Keep Flip Change**

First, we **keep **the first number or fraction unchanged.

Next, we **flip **the second fraction upside down.

Finally, we** change** the sign between the two fractions or numbers from ÷ to x.

If we are dividing whole numbers by fractions, we just keep the whole number unchanged, just as you would if it had been a fraction.

__Examples__

15 ÷ 5/6

**Keep** the whole number as it is: 15

**Flip** the fraction you're dividing by: 6/5

**Change** the sign to x

Now we have 15 x 6/5

The rule for multiplying a whole number by a fraction is **divide the big number by the bottom number and multiply by the top number.**

15 x 6/5

15 ÷ 5 = 3

3 x 6 = 18

**So 15 ÷ 5/6 = 18**

Let's look at another one.

32 ÷ 8/11

**Keep **32 unchanged: 32

**Flip** the fraction you're dividing by: 11/8

**Change** the sign to x

32 x 11/8

Divide the big number by the bottom number: 32 ÷ 8 = 4

Multiply by the top number: 4 x 11 = 44

So,** 32 ÷ 8/11 = 44**

Shall we have a go at some questions?
