Fractions are defined as the number placed on top, which is known as the numerator, whereas the number placed on the bottom is called the denominator. This quiz has been created to test your knowledge about common and equivalent fractions. You have to determine the one fraction is greater or less than another. Just go through the questions carefully and answer. All the best!

• 1.

Which of the following fractions is greater than 1/2?

• A.

1/3

• B.

3/5

• C.

9/20

• D.

1/4

• E.

2/6

B. 3/5
Explanation
The fraction 3/5 is greater than 1/2 because when comparing fractions, we can cross-multiply. When we cross-multiply 1/2 and 3/5, we get 5/10 and 6/10 respectively. Since 6/10 is greater than 5/10, 3/5 is greater than 1/2.

• C.

1/4 and 2/4

• D.

2/3 and 1/3

B. 4/3 and 8/6

The fractions 4/3 and 8/6 are equivalent because when you simplify 8/6 by dividing both the numerator and the denominator by their greatest common divisor (2), you get 4/3.
8/6 ÷ 2/2 = 4/3

Rate this question:

• 4.

5/2 ÷ 3/4 =

• A.

10/3

• B.

10/8

• C.

13/4

• D.

1

D. 1
Explanation
When dividing fractions, we can multiply the first fraction by the reciprocal of the second fraction. In this case, we have (5/2) รท (3/4), which is the same as (5/2) * (4/3). Multiplying the numerators (5 * 4) gives us 20, and multiplying the denominators (2 * 3) gives us 6. Therefore, the result is 20/6, which simplifies to 10/3. However, the given answer is 1, which is incorrect.

• 5.

5 ÷ 1/7 =

• A.

5/7

• B.

6/7

• C.

1/35

• D.

35

D. 35
Explanation
When dividing a number by a fraction, we can multiply the number by the reciprocal of the fraction to obtain the result. In this case, we divide 5 by 1/7, which is the same as multiplying 5 by 7/1. Multiplying 5 by 7 gives us 35, so the correct answer is 35.

Rate this question:

• 6.

2/5 x 3/7 =

• A.

14/15

• B.

6/35

• C.

35/6

• D.

15/14

D. 15/14
Explanation
To multiply fractions, we multiply the numerators together and the denominators together. In this case, multiplying 2/5 by 3/7 gives us (2 x 3) / (5 x 7), which simplifies to 6/35. Therefore, the correct answer is 6/35.

Rate this question:

• 7.

To have a + 1 3/4 = 2, a must be equal to

• A.

1

• B.

3/4

• C.

1/2

• D.

1/4

D. 1/4
Explanation
In order for the equation "a + 1 3/4 = 2" to be true, the value of "a" must be equal to 1/4.

Rate this question:

Write 2 1/3 as a fraction

• A.

2/3

• B.

7/3

• C.

1/3

• D.

6

D. 6
Explanation
The given question asks to write 2 1/3 as a fraction. To do this, we need to convert the mixed number 2 1/3 into an improper fraction. To convert the whole number 2 into a fraction, we multiply it by the denominator of the fraction, which is 3. This gives us 6/3. Adding the numerator 1 to this fraction, we get 7/3. Therefore, 2 1/3 can be written as the fraction 7/3.

• B.

4 7/8

• C.

3 1/8

• D.

3 7/8

D. 3 7/8
Explanation
To convert a fraction to a mixed number, divide the numerator by the denominator. In this case, 31 divided by 8 equals 3 with a remainder of 7. Therefore, the mixed number is 3 7/8.

Rate this question:

• 10.

Write 2/3 of 4 as a mixed number.

• A.

4 2/3

• B.

2/3

• C.

2 2/3

• D.

2

D. 2
Explanation
To write 2/3 of 4 as a mixed number, we need to find two-thirds of 4. Two-thirds of 4 is equal to 8/3. A mixed number consists of a whole number and a fraction. Since 8/3 is greater than 2, we can write it as a mixed number. The whole number is 2, and the fraction is 2/3. Therefore, the correct answer is 2 2/3.
