6 Free Dividing Fractions with the Same Denominator Worksheet

These dividing fractions with the same denominator worksheet will help to visualize and understand fractions, place value, and number systems. 5th and 6th-grade students will learn basic division of fractions with the same denominator methods and can improve their basic math skills with our free printable dividing fractions with the same denominator worksheet.

What are Fractions with the Same Denominator?

You will need two things to write or make a fraction. A numerator and a denominator.

The upper part of a fraction is called the numerator, and the lower part is the denominator.

From the heading, you can understand that we have to consider more than one fraction whose denominators, or lower parts, are the same. As in the image below, 2/5 and 3/5 are fractions with the same denominator because the denominator in both fractions is 5.

3 Fun Examples of Dividing Fractions with the Same Denominator Worksheet

In the following discussion, you will discover, three fun and exciting examples for dividing fractions with the same denominator. Go through each examples to find the differences among the examples.

Example 1: Dividing Proper Fractions with the Same Denominator Worksheet

When, in a fraction, the numerator is smaller than the denominator, then it is called a proper fraction. The decimal value of a proper fraction will always be less than 1.

Now, to do the division, you have to do the following.

• Firstly, put the two fractions serially, and then put the division sign between them.
• Secondly, transform the division sign into a multiplication sign and reverse the second fraction.
• By reversing, I am referring to altering the position of the numerator and denominator of the second fraction relative to each other.
• Finally, do the division of these numbers and show the final result.

In the following, you will find worksheets related to the above discussion.

Example 2: Dividing Mixed Numbers with Same Denominator Worksheet

Another example of fractions is mixed numbers. The mixed numbers consist of a whole or a full number and a proper fraction. You cannot divide or multiply a mixed number as you have done with the proper fraction.

To do that, you need to first transform the mixed number into an improper fraction.

How to do that and the following division Just go through the following points.

• Firstly, multiply the whole number with the denominator of the proper fraction.
• Secondly, add the multiplication result to the numerator, and tada! You will get an improper fraction whose denominator is greater than the numerator.
• Thirdly, change the division sign into multiplication like the previous example, and then again alter the position of the numerator and denominator of the second fraction with each other.
• Finally, do the division of these numbers as usual and show the newly formed fraction.

In the following, you will find worksheets related to the above discussion.

Example 3: Both Division and Multiplication with Same Denominator Worksheet

As it is becoming very boring to only divide with two fractions, now we are going to involve more than two fractions. Also, this time we will include both division and multiplication signs in the problems. Before solving these kinds of problems, follow the guidelines in the following.

• Firstly, look for any mixed numbers in the sequence, and if found, turn them into an improper fraction like the second activity.
• Secondly, transform all the division signs into multiplication and alter the numerator and denominator of the immediate fraction after the sign.
• Thirdly, make sure to make all the signs into multiplication, and then do the calculation as usual.
• Finally, after all the above steps, show the final result.
