How to find a fraction of a number

Here are the two easy steps for finding the fraction of a number:

Step 1 - Find the unit fraction of the number by dividing the number by the denominator

Step 2 - Multiply by the numerator.

You should have now found your fraction of a number!

Examples

Example 1) Find   5 6 of   24

Step 1)

A unit fraction is a fraction where the numerator is equal to 1.

To find the unit fraction of a number, you need to divide the number by the denominator.

This gives us   1 6 of   24 =   24 ÷ 6 = 4

Step 2)

We need to multiply our answer by the numerator which is 5.

So     5 6 of   24 = (  1 6 of   24 ) x 5 = 4 x 5 = 20

Example 2) Find   3 7 of 35

Step 1)

The denominator of the first fraction is 7.

This gives us   1 7 of   35 =   35 ÷ 7 = 5

Step 2)

We need to multiply our answer by the numerator which is 3.

So     3 7 of   35 = (  1 7 of   35 ) x 3 = 5 x 3 = 15
