Measurement Modeling Multiplication of a Fraction by a Mixed Number

2
**Multiplying Fractions & Whole Numbers**

When we multiply whole numbers we can model the multiplication to arrive at the answer. 3 Example: 4 x 3 4

**Multiplying Fractions & Whole Numbers**

We can also model the multiplication of two fractions. 2/3 Example: 3/4 x 2/3 = 6/12 =1/2 1 2 3 4 3/4 5 6

**Multiplying Fractions & Whole Numbers**

Using these ideas, we can now model fractions by mixed numbers. Example: 1/3 of 1½ 1/3 x 1½

5
**Multiplying Fractions & Whole Numbers**

We start with 1 ½ squares. 1 ½ 1/3 x 1½

6
**Multiplying Fractions & Whole Numbers**

We then divide the squares by 1/3 in the other direction. 1 ½ 1/3 1/3 x 1½

7
**Multiplying Fractions & Whole Numbers**

How many spaces are shaded by both the yellow and the pattern? This is the numerator in the answer. 1 ½ 1 2 3 1/3 1/3 x 1½

8
**Multiplying Fractions & Whole Numbers**

How many rectangles are there in ONE square? This is the denominator in the answer. 1 ½ 1 3 1/3 3 4 5 6 1/3 x 1½

**Multiplying Fractions & Whole Numbers**

1/3 x 1½ = 3/6 = 1/2 1 ½ 1/3
