Write the product as the product of a whole number and a unit fraction 4 x 2/6

Accepted Solution

When you multiply a whole number by a fraction, you multiply the whole number by the numerator (top) of the fraction and you end up with an improper fraction. This question simply wants you to multiply the whole number by the numerator, then multiply that whole number by the remaining fraction.

= 4 * 2/6
multiply 4 by the numerator
multiply 4*2 then separate from the remaining 1/6 fraction
=8 * 1/6

ANSWER: 8 * 1/6
