# How to Find the Missing Number in Multiplying Fractions | Free Printable

This article will show you how to find the missing number in multiplying fractions with some funny and interactable games for 4th or 5th-grader students. Fractions are very common phenomena in mathematical terms. Fraction operations are also important.

One of the most important phenomena of this **fraction operation** is multiplication. A fraction can be multiplied with a certain number or with a fraction also.

The numerator and denominator are the two components that make up a fraction. The denominator is the number of equally sized parts that the whole is divided into, and the numerator is the number of parts of the whole that you have.

In the fraction 3/4, for instance, the numerator (3) denotes 3 portions of the whole whereas the denominator (4) denotes the division of the whole into 4 equal pieces. In general, the numerator divided by the denominator determines the value of a fraction, therefore 3/4 is equivalent to 3 divided by 4, or 0.75.

## Find the Missing Number in Fraction Multiplication

When **multiplying fractions**, make a summation of the various components to determine the whole number. In the multiplication of fractions, you must use the information you already possess to identify the missing component in order to find the missing number. this the process of how to find the missing number in multiplying fractions. Here’s an example:

Consider the situation where you have half a pizza and want to know how many slices you have if each pizza is divided into four pieces. You can obtain the solution by using fractions.

1/2 * 4 = ?

Half of a pizza is represented by the first fraction, 1/2. The second fraction, 4, represents the number of slices made from the entire pizza. The solution is obtained by multiplying the numerators (the top numbers) collectively:

1 * 4 = 4.

So, 1/2 * 4 = 2.

You thus have 2 slices of pizza! When multiplying fractions, you determine the sum by adding the various components.
