1.

An eighth of an eighth is the same as what fraction of a fourth?

2.

What is 9^{6}⁄_{8} as an improper fraction in its simplest form?

To convert a mixed fraction to an improper fraction, follow these steps: 1. Multiply the whole number part by the denominator. 2. Add this result to the numerator. 3. Write the fraction with step 2 in the numerator and keep the original denominator. STEP 1: 9 × 8 = 72. STEP 2: 72 + 6 = 78. STEP 3: ^{78}⁄_{8}. Divide the numerator and denominator by 2 to reduce the fraction to its simplest form: ^{39}⁄_{4}

3.

What is ^{24}⁄_{7} as a mixed fraction in its simplest form?

2^{10}⁄_{7}

3^{7}⁄_{24}

3^{3}⁄_{7}

7^{3}⁄_{7}

To convert an improper fraction to a mixed fraction, follow these steps: 1. Divide the numerator by the denominator. 2. Note the whole number remainder. 3. Write the number from step 1 as the whole number in front of the fractional part AND write the fractional part with the remainder in the numerator and keep the original denominator. STEP 1: 24 ÷ 7 = 3. STEP 2: Remainder 3. STEP 3: 3^{3}⁄_{7}

4.

What is four-fifths of five-sixteenths in its simplest form?

The word OF means multiply: ^{4}⁄_{5} × ^{5}⁄_{16} = ^{1}⁄_{4}. You multiply the numbers in the denominator together, and you multiply the numbers in the numerator together to form a single fraction. This fraction can then be reduced to its simplest form: sometimes you can reduce the fractions before you multiply them together

5.

What is ^{4}⁄_{6} + ^{8}⁄_{3} + ^{5}⁄_{15} expressed as a mixed fraction?

3^{3}⁄_{2}

2^{2}⁄_{3}

3^{4}⁄_{6}

3^{2}⁄_{3}

6.

What is 5^{4}⁄_{8} as an improper fraction in its simplest form?

To convert a mixed fraction to an improper fraction, follow these steps: 1. Multiply the whole number part by the denominator. 2. Add this result to the numerator. 3. Write the fraction with step 2 in the numerator and keep the original denominator. STEP 1: 5 × 8 = 40. STEP 2: 40 + 4 = 44. STEP 3: ^{44}⁄_{8}. Divide the numerator and denominator by 4 to reduce the fraction to its simplest form: ^{11}⁄_{2}

7.

If ^{17}⁄_{30} of the class voted against extra homework, how many pupils in the class voted in favor of extra homework?

17 pupils

13 pupils

8.

What is ^{18}⁄_{4} as a mixed fraction in its simplest form?

4^{1}⁄_{2}

3^{2}⁄_{6}

4^{1}⁄_{3}

4^{2}⁄_{4}

To convert an improper fraction to a mixed fraction, follow these steps: 1. Divide the numerator by the denominator. 2. Note the whole number remainder. 3. Write the number from step 1 as the whole number in front of the fractional part AND write the fractional part with the remainder in the numerator and keep the original denominator. STEP 1: 18 ÷ 4 = 4. STEP 2: Remainder 2. STEP 3: 4^{2}⁄_{4}. Divide the numerator and denominator by 2 to reduce the fraction to its simplest form: 4^{1}⁄_{2}

9.

There are 360° in a circle. If you walk round ^{5}⁄_{8} of the circumference of a circle, how many degrees will you have walked around?

225°

576°

125°

252°

All you have to do is find ^{5}⁄_{8} of 360°: ^{5}⁄_{8} × 360° = (5 × 360°) ÷ 8 = 1,800° ÷ 8 = 225°. Do the brackets first

10.

How many ^{6}⁄_{15} are there in ^{4}⁄_{5}?

4

24

2

3

^{1}⁄_{8}×^{1}⁄_{8}=^{1}⁄_{64}. You now have to find a fraction which multiplied with^{1}⁄_{4}gives^{1}⁄_{64}. Well, 4 × 16 = 64, so the fraction (in its simplest form) must be^{1}⁄_{16}
