The sheets are carefully graded so that the easiest sheets come first, and the most difficult sheet is the last one.

Before your child tackles dividing fractions, they should be confident with multiplying fractions, and also converting mixed fractions to improper fractions and reducing fractions to simplest form.

Using these sheets will help your child to:

  • divide a fraction by a whole number;

Dividing Fractions Calculator

If you want to divide fractions, you can use the calculator below.

To enter a fraction, you have to enter the numerator followed by '/' followed by the denominator. E.g. 4/5 or 23/7

To enter a mixed fraction, first type the whole number followed by space followed by the numerator followed by '/' followed by the denominator. E.g. 3 1/4 (3 and a quarter).

This calculator will work out Fraction1 ÷ Fraction2.

How to Divide Fractions Support

Frazer says "To divide a fraction by an integer, or whole numbers, follow these 4 easy steps."

Frazer the Fraction Salamander

Step 1

Change the whole number to a fraction by putting it over a denominator of 1.

If any of the fractions are mixed fractions (or mixed numbers), then first convert them into improper fractions.

Step 2

Swap the numerator and denominator of the dividend fraction (the fraction after the ÷ sign) and change the operand to a 'x' instead of a '÷'

Step 3

Multiply the numerators of the fractions together, and the denominators of the fractions together. This will give you the answer.

Step 4 (Optional)

You may want to convert the fraction into its simplest form or convert it back to a mixed fraction (if it is an improper fraction).
