These fraction word problems are great for ages 10 and older who are looking to improve their fraction skills.
16
12 ÷ 3/4 can also be written as:
12 x 4/3 which is 48/3
48/3 = 16
1 and a half oranges
6 / 4 = 1.5
Therefore 1 and a half oranges each.
5
Three-quarters is 3/4
3/4 x 20 = 15
Therefore 15 slices are eaten
20 - 15 = 5 slices are left
100
2/5 can also be written as 0.4
And 100 times by 0.4 would give us 40
8
Write this in numbers and then solve:
1/5 * 40 = 8
1/6
2 of the 12 birds flew away
2/12 = 1/6
3
1/2 x 6 = 3
150 cm
You can break this into two calculations:
2 x 60 = 120
And
1/2 x 60 = 30
Add these together 120 + 30 = 150
6
⅙ x 36 = 6 This can also be written as 36/6 = 6
350
1/6 x 420 = 70 steps
He must, therefore, have 420 - 70 = 350 steps left
