Multiplying Fractions by Whole Numbers
  • Multiplying a fraction by an integer follows the same rules as multiplying two fractions.
  • An integer can be considered to be a fraction with a denominator of 1.
  • Therefore when a fraction is multiplied by an integer the numerator of the fraction is multiplied by the integer.
  • The denominator is multiplied by 1 which does not change the denominator.
