  The bottom number of a fraction is called the denominator.

# Fractions (Year 6)

In KS2 Maths, Year Six students learn about fractions. Fractions show part of a whole number. There are two types: proper fractions (top number smaller than the bottom) and improper fractions (top number larger than the bottom).

Kids should know numerators and denominators. Improper fractions can become mixed numbers. For instance, 43 equals 113. Fractions might seem tricky, but our Fractions in Maths article can help your child understand them better.

1.
Which of these are NOT equivalent to each other?
39 and 13
68 and 34
46 and 812
110 and 25
15 = 210

The denominator tells us the number of parts the whole is divided into
3.
How do we reduce 520 to an equivalent fraction?
Divide the numerator and denominator by 2
Divide the numerator and denominator by the same number

Multiply the numerator and denominator by the same number
We have to find the lowest common multiple of 5 and 20 which is 5 so the equivalent will be 14
4.
What is the numerator?
The top number of a fraction
The bottom number of a fraction
The divider between the two numbers of a fraction
The whole number in a mixed fraction
The numerator tells us how many of the equal parts there are
5.
How many 11,000 in a whole one?
10
100
1,000
10,000
1,0001,000 = 1, just as 100100 or 33 = 1
6.
What would 129 be when converted to a mixed number?
339
113
149
219

142
156
146
136
146 could also be written as 73
8.
Which of these statements is FALSE?
One half is 3 times more than one sixth
One third is twice as much as one sixth

One tenth is ten times more than one hundredth
9.
Which is an equivalent of 615?
25
37
210
13
6 ÷ 3 = 2 and 15 ÷ 3 = 5 so 25 is the same as 615
10.
How do we change 310 to an equivalent fraction?
Divide the numerator by the denominator
Divide the numerator and denominator by the same number
Multiply the numerator by the denominator
Multiply the numerator and denominator by the same number
If we multiply by 10 the equivalent fraction will be 30100
