Welcome to this, the second of our very easy Eleven Plus maths quizzes on fractions. These are not everybody’s favourite kind of numbers and many find decimals much simpler to work with. However, to do well at school you’ll need to find your way around fractions and these quizzes will give you plenty of opportunity to practice.
The bottom number in a fraction (the denominator) tells you the number of pieces a whole was divided into, and the top number (the numerator) tells us how many of these pieces the fraction represents. So, in ¾, imagine a cake cut into 4 pieces, and ¾ represents 3 of these pieces.
Like most things in maths, fractions may seem hard at first, but once you know how to deal with them, you’ll find them quite easy to control.
Are we feeling confident? Then let’s begin. Good luck!
