DECIMAL FRACTIONS

• LESSON THREE –  Multiplication of Mixed Numbers

Lead pupils to the following steps when multiplying mixed numbers:

1. Change mixed number into improper fractions.
3. Write the answer as a mixed numbers.
• Example 1- Mixed Fractions

1 3/4 x 2 4/7 =

Change mixed number into improper fractions,

= 7/4 x 16/7

= 1/1 x 4/1

= 4.

• Example 2 – Fractions by Whole Numbers

10 x 2 3/8 =

= 10 x 19/8

= 5 x 19/4

= 95/4

= 23 3/4

• Example 3

7/3 x 5/14 =

= 1/3 x 5/7

= 5/21.

• Exercises
1. 2 3/12 x 8 =
2. 5/7 x 14/15 =
3. 4 3/4 x 1 2/5 =

LESSON FOUR

• Example 1 – Multiplication of Decimals by 2-digit Numbers

2 3 . 2 x 1 5 =

2 3 . 2 – – – – – – – – – – – 1 (number of digits after the decimal point)

x   1 5 – – – – – – – – – – – -0 (no decimal point)

__________ perform the basic multiplication and ignore decimal point

1 1 6 0

+ 2 3 2

__________

3 4 8 . 0      (1 + 0 = 1, total number after the decimal points then place after the count from the right hand side).

• Example 2 – decimals by decimals

2 . 1 3 x 2 .1 2 =

2 . 1 3     – – – – – – – – 2

x 2 .1 2     – – – – – – – – 2

_________                  ___

4 2 6                        4

+    2 1 3

+ 4 2 6

_______________

4 . 5 1 5 6      »         decimal point after count of 4 digits from right hand side.

• Exercises
1. 8 9 . 2 3 x 12 =
2. 1 . 0 4 x 1 1 . 2 =

[bibblio style=”bib–default bib–hover bib–white-label bib–font-arial bib–size-18 bib–grd-6″ query_string_params=”e30=” recommendation_type=”optimised”]

• Further exercises on multiplication of whole numbers, decimals and fractions as in recommended books.

2. Guides pupils to Multiply a 4/5 – digit whole numbers by 1/2 – digit whole numbers;
3. Pupil’s Activities – Multiply a 4/5 – digit whole numbers by 1/2 – digit whole numbers.
4. Guides pupils to multiply a 3 – digit whole numbers by 3 – digit whole numbers;
5. Pupil’s Activities – Multiply a 3 – digit whole numbers by 3 – digit whole numbers.
6. Guides pupils to multiply fractions by fractions and whole numbers;
7. Pupil’s Activities – Multiply fractions by fractions and whole numbers.
8. Guides pupils to multiply decimals by decimals and whole numbers;
9. Pupil’s Activities – Multiply decimals by decimals and whole numbers.
10. Work To Do.
