1 Maths Refresher Working with Fractions

2 Working with fractions Learning intentions. Become familiar with fractions Equivalent fractions Converting mixed numbers to improper fractions Converting improper fractions to mixed numbers Converting decimals into fractions Converting fractions into decimals Fraction addition and subtraction Fraction multiplication and division

3 Become familiar with fractions Fractions are representations of parts of a whole. Fractions are rational numbers A rational number can take the form of a fraction aa bb the numerator and the denominator are whole numbers An irrational number cannot be written as a simple fraction. For example: π =

4 Become familiar with fractions It is important to recognise that division and fractions are linked. Even the division symbol ( ) is a fraction: 1 is the same as 1 divided by = 0.5

5 Become familiar with fractions A fraction is made up of two main parts: numerator and denominator 3 nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn 4 dddddddddddddddddddddd the bar or vinculum The denominator represents how many even parts of the whole has been divided into. The numerator tells you the number of even parts you have. For example, 5 of a pizza means: 8 Denominator: you have cut the pizza into 8 even pieces Numerator: you have 5 of them. Then there will be 3 left over. 8

6 Become familiar with fractions A proper fraction has a numerator smaller than the denominator, e.g. 3 4 An improper fraction has a numerator larger than the denominator, e.g. 4 3 A mixed fraction is made up from a whole number and a fraction, e.g Introduction to fractions https://www.khanacademy.org/math/arithmetic/fractions/understanding_fractions /v/introduction-to-fractions

7 Equivalent fractions Fractions should always be displayed in their simplest form, 6 12 is written as 1 2 Equivalence is a concept that is easy to understand when a fraction wall is used on the next slide. You will see that each row has been split into different fractions: top row into 2 halves, bottom row 12 twelfths. An equivalent fraction splits the row at the same place. Therefore:» 1 2 = 2 4 = 3 6 = 4 8 = 5 10 = 6 12

8 Equivalent fractions

9 Equivalent fractions Mathematically, whatever I do to the numerator (multiply or divide), I must also do to the denominator (and vice versa). Take 2 as an example. If I multiply the 3 numerator by 4, then I must multiply the denominator by = 8 12

10 Equivalent fractions To simplify a fraction, you must divide both the numerator and the denominator by the same number. For example: 8 ( 4) 12 ( 4) = 2 3 Equivalent fractions https://www.khanacademy.org/math/arithmetic/fractions/equivalent_fractions/v/equivalentfractions

12 Equivalent fractions Answers: = = = =

13 Converting mixed numbers to improper fractions A mixed number is a way of expressing quantities greater than 1. A mixed number represents the number of wholes and remaining parts of a whole that you have, while an improper fraction represents how many parts you have. The diagram on the next slide illustrates the difference between a mixed number and an improper fraction, using a quantity of car oil as an example. Mixed numbers and improper fractions (converting both ways) https://www.khanacademy.org/math/pre-algebra/fractions-pre-alg/mixed-numbers-prealg/v/mixed-numbers-and-improper-fractions Mr Duey Improper fractions https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v96_pjlrvqc

14 Converting mixed numbers to improper fractions is the same as = 7 haaaaaaaaaa = 7 2 On the left, we use a mixed number to represent 3 whole litres and 1 half litre. We write this mixed number as 3 ½. On the right, we use an improper fraction to represent 7 half litres. We write this improper fraction as 7. 2

15 Converting mixed numbers to improper fractions You are more likely to encounter mixed numbers than improper fractions in every day language. EG: you are more likely to say my car requires 3 ½ litres of oil rather than my car requires 7/2 litres of oil. Multiplying and dividing fractions is much easier when they are in improper form. Mixed numbers are usually converted to improper fractions before they are used in calculations.

16 Converting mixed numbers to improper fractions To convert from a mixed number to an improper fraction, multiply the whole number by the denominator then add the numerator. The total becomes the new numerator which is then placed over the original denominator. For example: CCCCCCCCCCCCCC 3 1 iiiiiiii aaaa iiiiiiiiiiiiiiii ffffffffffffffff. 2 wwwwwwwwwwwwww: 3 wwhccaaaa nnnnnnnnnnnn 2 dddddddddddddddddddddd + 1 nnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnnn = 7 so: = 7 TThaaCCaaffCCCCaa CChaa iiiiiiiiiiiiiiii ffffffffffffffff iiii 7 2

18 Converting mixed numbers to improper fractions Answers: = = = = 17 8

19 Converting improper fractions to mixed numbers While improper fractions are good for calculations, they are rarely used in everyday situations. For example, people do not wear a size 23 2 shoe. To convert to an improper fraction we need to work out how many whole numbers we have. Let s use the example from the previous section, in reverse.

20 Converting improper fractions to mixed numbers = sseeeeeeee haaaaaaaaaa = 7 2 But we can see that 6 of the halves combine to form 3 wholes; with a half left over: = To calculate how many whole numbers we have, we divide the numerator by the denominator. Whatever the remainder is becomes the new numerator! Using a worked example of the diagram on the previous slide: CCCCCCCCCCCCCC 7 iiiiiiii aa mmmmmmmmmm nnnnnnnnnnnn. 2 Woooooooooooo: 7 2 = 3.5 CChaa wwhccaaaa nnnnnnnnnnnn iiii 3 wwiicch ssssssss rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr. IIII II haaaaaa 3 wwhccaaaa nnnnnnnnnnnnnn CChaaCC iiii 6 haaaaaaaaaa 3 2. II mmmmmmmm nnnnnn haaaaaa 1 haaaaaa rrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr (7 6). TThaaCCaaffCCCCaa II haaaaaa 3 1 2

21 Converting improper fractions to mixed numbers That was an easy one. Another example: Convert 17 into a mixed fraction. 5 working: 17 5 = 3.4 the whole number is 3 with some remaining. If I have 3 whole numbers that is 15 fifths. (3

23 Converting improper fractions to mixed numbers Answers: = = 13 9 = = = 36 7

24 Converting fractions to decimals Converting a fraction to decimal form is a simple process - use the divide key on your calculator. Note: If you have a mixed number, convert it to an improper fraction before dividing it on your calculator. Example problems: 2 = 2 3 = eeeeee = 3 8 = (recap from last week: this decimal terminates) 8 17 = 17 3 = eeeeee 5.67 or = = eeeeee 3.56 or Converting fractions to decimals (and vice versa) https://www.khanacademy.org/math/pre-algebra/decimals-pre-alg/decimal-to-fraction-prealg/v/converting-fractions-to-decimals

26 Converting fractions to decimals Answers: = = = = = 5.8

27 Converting decimals into fractions Decimals are an almost universal method of displaying data, particularly given that it is easier to enter decimals, as opposed to fractions, into computers. However, fractions can be more accurate. For example: 1 iiii nnnnnn 0.33 iiii iiii eeeeee! 3 The method used to convert decimals into fractions is based on the notion of place value. The place value of the last digit in the decimal determines the denominator.

28 Converting decimals into fractions Example problems: 0.5 has 5 in the tenths column. Therefore 0.5 is 5 10 = 1 2 (ddddnn tt ffffffffffff eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeee ffffffffffffffffff!) has the 5 in the thousandth column. Therefore is = has 5 in the hundredths column ignore the whole number and you have = 1 1 4

32 Fraction addition and subtraction Adding and subtracting fractions draws on the concept of equivalent fractions. The golden rule is that you can only add and subtract fractions if they have the same denominator = However, if our two fractions do not have the same denominator, we must use equivalent fractions to find a common denominator before we can add them. Adding and subtraction fractions https://www.khanacademy.org/math/arithmetic/fractions/fractions-unlike-denom/v/addingand-subtracting-fractions

33 Fraction addition and subtraction We cannot simply add ; this will not give us 2 sixths 4 2 These fractions have different denominators (4 and 2). Before these fractions can be added together they must both have the same denominator. This can be achieved by making 4 the lowest common denominator, since it is possible to change 1 iiiiiiii 2 by 2 4 multiplying both the numerator and denominator by two: 1 2 = So, now we can do the addition because the denominators are the same, and the sum is now: = 3 (much bigger than 2 ) 6

34 Fraction addition and subtraction Let s look at = We cannot simply add these fractions together because the denominators are different. So, before we can do the addition, we need to find the lowest common denominator. The easiest way to do this is to multiply the 1 denominators: (2 x 3 = 6). 3 aaaaaa 1 2 Therefore, both fractions can have a denominator of 6.

35 Fraction addition and subtraction The next step is convert both fractions into their equivalent form, with a 6 as the denominator: what do we do to 1 3 tttt cccccccccccccc tttt? wwhiiffh iiii 2 6 and: What do we do to 1 2 tttt cccccccccccccc tttt? wwhiiffh iiii 3 6

36 Fraction addition and subtraction So, the sum becomes: = = 5 6

37 Fraction addition and subtraction With practise, a pattern forms, as is illustrated in the next example: In the example above, the lowest common denominator is found by multiplying 3 and 5, then the numerators are multiplied by 5 and 3 respectively. = 1 5 +(2 3) (3 5) = 5+6 =

40 Fraction multiplication and division Compared to addition and subtraction, multiplication and division of fractions is easy to do, but rather odd to understand. For example, imagine I have 1 of a pizza and I 2 want to share it between 2 people. Each person gets a quarter of the pizza. Mathematically, this example would be written as: = 1 4.

41 Fraction multiplication and division Tip: Remember that fractions and division are related so multiplying by a half is the same as dividing by two. Multiplying negative and positive fractions https://www.khanacademy.org/math/cc-seventh-grade-math/cc-7th-fractions-decimals/cc-7thmult-div-frac/v/multiplying-negative-and-positive-fractions Dividing fractions example https://www.khanacademy.org/math/arithmetic/fractions/div-fractions-fractions/v/anotherdividing-fractions-example

42 Fraction multiplication and division But what if the question is more challenging: This problem is not as easy as splitting a pizza! The rule to use is: multiply the numerators then multiply the denominators Therefore = (2 7) (3 16) = = 7 24

43 Fraction multiplication and division We have a whole rectangle and the orange section represents 7 of the whole, (oooo) 7 16 = 7 24

44 Fraction multiplication and division We have a whole rectangle and the orange section represents 7 of the whole, 16 then we divide that section into thirds, (oooo) 7 16 = 7 24

45 Fraction multiplication and division We have a whole rectangle and the orange section represents 7 of the whole, then we 16 divide that section into thirds, then we can see we have 7 sections that are each 1 24 ; therefore (oooo) 7 16 =

46 Fraction multiplication and division We have a whole rectangle and the orange section represents 7 of the whole, then 16 we divide that section into thirds, then we can see we have 7 sections that are each 1 ; therefore (oooo) 7 16 =

47 Fraction multiplication and division At first, division of fractions seems odd, but it is a simple concept: 1 2 iiii CChaa ssssssss aaaa 2 1 If the sign is swapped to its opposite, the fraction is flipped upside down (the fraction that is flipped upside down is referred to as the reciprocal). Therefore 2 1 iiii CChaa ssssssss aaaa 2 2 = (2 2) = 4 = (3 1) 3 Note: dividing by half doubled the answer

48 Fraction multiplication and division 2 We can ask how many halves can we take out of two thirds. There is one half and then one third of a half = 1 1 3
