  • 5 x 1
  • 235 x 1
  • 2/3 x 1
  • a x 1

Rasing Fractions

7
Rasing Fractions
  • A man walks into the pizza store and orders a
    medium pizza.
  • The clerk asks Would you like that cut in 8
    pieces or 6?
  • The man replied Make it 6. I dont think I
    can eat 8.

8
Rasing Fractions
  • To raise fractions make the denominator larger.
  • Multiply numerator and denominator (top and
    bottom) of the fraction by the same number.
  • This is the same thing as multiplying by 1.

9
Rasing Fractions
  • Multiply numerator and denominator (top and
    bottom) of the fraction by the same number.
  • This is the same thing as multiplying by 1.

10
Rasing Fractions
  • Raise 3/8 to 56ths.
  • Multiply numerator and denominator (top and
    bottom) of the fraction by the same number.

11
Rasing Fractions
  • Raise 3/8 to 56ths.
  • Multiply numerator and denominator (top and
    bottom) of the fraction by the same number.

12
Reducing Fractions
  • Opposite of raising.
  • Make the denominator smaller.
  • Divide numerator and denominator by the same
    number.

13
Reducing Fractions
  • Might take more than one step.
  • More than one way.
  • Divide numerator and denominator by the same
    number.

14
Reducing Fractions
  • Divide numerator and denominator by the same
    number.

15
Reducing Fractions
  • Divide numerator and denominator by the same
    number.

16
Proper and Improper
  • An improper fraction has a numerator larger than
    the denominator.
  • A proper fration has a numerator smaller than the
    denominator.

17
Mixed vs. Improper
  • A mixed number has a whole and fraction part.
  • A mixednumber can be written as an improper and
    visa versa.

18
Work this on paper.
  • We have 5 full crates of apples and one crate
    with only7 apples. The full crates contain 30
    apples.
  • How many apples altogether?

19
Work this on paper.
  • We have 5 full crates of apples and one crate
    with only7 apples. The full crates contain 30
    apples.
  • How many apples altogether?
  • 157 apples.
  • How did you get the answer?

20
Mixed to Improper.
  • You multiplied the 5 times 30 and added the 7
  • To change a mixed number to improper, multiply
    the denominator by the whole part and add the
    numerator. Keep the denominator the same.

21
Mixed to improper
  • Try some.

22
Mixed to improper
  • Try some.

23
Try this on paper.
  • We have 135 pencils and boxes that hold 12
    each.
  • How many full boxes? How many loose pencils?
  • How did you get your answer?

24
Try this on paper.
  • We have 135 pencils and boxes that hold 12
    each.
  • How many full boxes? 11 How many loose pencils?
    3
  • How did you get your answer?
  • Divided 135 by 12. The remainder was the left
    over.
  • 135/12 11 3/12

25
Improper to Mixed
  • Divide.
