This is a good example of the worksheets we have for year 5 on fractions and division. Only six questions on this worksheet, but plenty of important concepts, which children often find very tricky to understand.
Firstly, that division can be represented as a fraction, and, of course, a fraction can be thought of as a division.
Secondly, an improper fraction (where the top number is larger than the bottom number) can be shown as a mixed number (a whole number and a proper fraction). This can be done by dividing the numerator (top number) by the denominator (bottom number) to find the whole part with the remainder being the numerator of the new fraction. The denominator remains the same.
These, and similar pages can be found in our Year 5 Counting and Understand Number section.
