Multiply Fractions by Whole Number- 5th Grade Math
Multiply Fraction by a Whole Worksheet focuses on multiplying a fraction by a whole. In addition to direct multiplication, students practice multiplication as scaling. For example, the result of multiplying a number by a fraction less than 1 is less than the original number; therefore it is like scaling down. Similarly, multiplying by a fraction greater than 1 is like scaling up. In this worksheet, students also encounter situation, where the result of multiplication is a whole. For example, 20 x 3/4 = 15.
