KS2 Maths Quiz - Fractions (Year 6) (Questions)

In KS2 Year Six, children should be quite comfortable when dealing with fractions in Maths. By now they should be well aware of the values of different fractions and know the difference between numerators and denominators. They should also be able to convert improper fractions into mixed numbers and be good at recognising equivalent values for proper and improper fractions.

Recognising a fraction when you see one is easy. Fractions represent part of a whole number. But not all fractions are the same type. Proper fractions have top numbers, or numerators, lower than their bottom numbers, or denominators. Improper fractions are those where the numerators are bigger than the denominators. Another way to write improper fractions is as mixed numbers where units are shown next to a proper fraction. For example, 43 is the equivalent of 113.

Fractions can be tricky to understand. Give your child some help in our extensive Fractions in Maths article.

1. How many 11,000 in a whole one?
[ ] 10
[ ] 100
[x] 1,000
[ ] 10,000
1,0001,000 = 1, just as 100100 or 33 = 1
2. What is the numerator?
[x] 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
3. What do we call the bottom number of a fraction?
[ ] Numerator
[ ] Factor
[ ] Multiple
[x] Denominator
The denominator tells us the number of parts the whole is divided into
4. What would 129 be when converted to a mixed number?
[ ] 339
[x] 113
[ ] 149
[ ] 219
129 could be written as 139, 113 or 43
5. What would 226 be when converted to an improper fraction?
[ ] 142
[ ] 156
[x] 146
[ ] 136
146 could also be written as 73
6. Which of these are NOT equivalent to each other?
[ ] 39 and 13
[ ] 68 and 34
[ ] 46 and 812
[x] 110 and 25
15 = 210
7. 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 twentieth is half of one tenth
[x] One hundredth is ten times more than one tenth
One tenth is ten times more than one hundredth
8. How do we reduce 520 to an equivalent fraction?
[ ] Divide the numerator and denominator by 2
[x] Divide the numerator and denominator by the same number
[ ] Multiply the numerator and denominator by 2
[ ] 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
9. 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
[x] Multiply the numerator and denominator by the same number
If we multiply by 10 the equivalent fraction will be 30100
10. Which is an equivalent of 615?
[x] 25
[ ] 37
[ ] 210
[ ] 13
6 ÷ 3 = 2 and 15 ÷ 3 = 5 so 25 is the same as 615
