To multiply a fraction and a whole number, you can follow these steps:
Step 1: Convert the whole number into a fraction by placing it over a denominator of 1.
Step 2: Cancel out common factors in the numerator and denominator.
Step 3: Multiply the numerators of the fraction and the whole number together.
Step 4: Multiply the denominators of the fraction and the whole number together.
Step 5: Simplify the resulting fraction, if possible, by reducing the numerator and denominator to their lowest terms.
Here is an example:
Suppose you want to multiply 2/3 by the whole number 4.
Step 1: Convert the whole number 4 into a fraction: 4/1.
Step 2: Cancel out common factors in the numerator and denominator.
Step 3: Multiply the numerators together: 2 x 4 = 8.
Step 4: Multiply the denominators together: 3 x 1 = 3.
Step 5: Simplify the resulting fraction: 8/3 cannot be simplified further.
Therefore, 2/3 multiplied by 4 equals 8/3, which is equivalent to the mixed number 2 2/3.
