1 MULTIPLICATION OF FRACTIONS BY WHOLE NUMBERS Objective: Multiply fractions by whole numbers. Multiply. Reduce your answers to lowest terms. 1) 2 1 8 4 x 2) 5 1 3 2 x 3) 7 2 5 4 x 4) 5 3 9 2 x 5) 4 3 9 7 x Read the story problem carefully. Nanay Lagring bought 12 guavas. She asked Rizza to keep 3 2 of them in the refrigerator. How many guavas did Rizza place in the refrigerator? How many apples did mother buy? Here are the 12 guavas. Using the denominator of 3 2 , into how many small groups should Rizza divide the guavas? ( three ) REVIEW STUDY AND LEARN GRADE V MULTIPLICATION OF FRACTIONS BY WHOLE NUMBERS
How many small groups of guavas should be placed in the refrigerator? Two How many guavas are there in 2 small groups? 8 guavas So, 3 2 of 12 is 8. Rizza kept 8 guavas in the refrigerator. Let’s try to solve the problem in another way, by computation. 3 2 of 12 is the same as 3 2 x 12 = N. Solving this is easy because you already know how to multiply 2 fractions. 12 can be written as 1 12 in fraction form.
