Fraction Reminder
Level F
A Fraction consists of 2 parts.
Top number called the NUMERATOR
Bottom number called the DENOMINATOR
5
Fractions
Level F
We can sometimes simplify a fraction by
dividing by the HCF of the numerator and
denominator
F15 1 and 15 3 and 5
F27 1 and 27 3 and 9

Top Heavy to Mixed
Level F
means seven thirds

Top Heavy to Mixed
Level F
NUMERATOR ? DENOMINATOR
can be written as 7 ? 3
9
Top Heavy to Mixed
Level F
NUMERATOR ? DENOMINATOR
can be written as 17 ? 5
10
Mixed to Top Heavy
Level F
WHOLE NUMBER ? DENOMINATOR then add NUMERATOR
Changing a mixed fraction to a top-heavy.
5 ? 4 ? 3
? 23 quarters
7 ? 5 ? 2
? 37 fifths
