How much of 4 is 3?
• To find how big a portion you have, divide the
numerator by the denominator.
• 34 0.75
• or 75
• So ¾ 75

numerators and denominators.
• Or Half a dollar 2 quarters.

Common Multiple
• A number that is a multiple of two or more
numbers.

0 and 1 the product is smaller than both
fractions.

Dividing Mixed Numbers and Fractions
• Multiply the first number by the reciprocal of
the second number. (To find the reciprocal flip
it!)
• (The reciprocal of 1/4 is 4/1)
