About our Dividing Fractions Worksheets

Here you will find a selection of Fraction worksheets designed to help your child understand how to divide a fraction by another fraction, or to divide a fraction by a whole number.

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 first be confident with multiplying fractions.

Using these sheets will help your child to:

  • divide a fraction by another fraction;
  • apply their understanding of simplest form;
  • convert between mixed fractions and improper fractions.
