Rules for dividing by a fraction are multiply by the reciprocal. The reciprocal of a unit fraction is a whole number. Multiplying by a whole number will make the answer (quotient) larger. ex unit fraction 1/a 7 divided by 1/a = 7 x a/1 = 7a .... a times larger than 7.

it is smaller (1/2)/2=.25

A fraction can be larger than 1, for example, 4/2 is a fraction (which can be simplified to 2). Only a fraction that is larger than 1, multiplied by another number gives you a larger number.

You can have fractions larger than 1. For example, 9/8 is a fraction that is larger than 1, as is 100000000000000000000000/3. Thus, the greatest possible fraction in the universe is greater than 1.

an improper fraction

The unit measure which is larger than miles is only 1 unit that is, the light years .

The answer will depend on the sign of the fraction.(1/4) / 2 = 1/8, which is smaller.(-1/4) / 2 = -1/8, which is greater.

Any fraction where the numerator is larger than the denominator (improper fraction.) 3/2 can also be written as 1 1/2.

Unit fractions are fractions where the top number (numerator) is 1. EG: 1 over 5 ( 1/5 ) - The top number is 1 so it is a unit fraction.a unit fraction is any fraction with a numerator of 1 for example: 1/8 is a unit fraction 1/125, is a unit fraction 9/16 is NOTa unit fraction

The number (the fraction) is greater than one.

One seventh is larger than one eighth. The smaller the number under a 1 in a fraction, the larger that fraction is. Think 1/4, 1/3, 1/2 and you'll see the size of the fraction increasing; the numbers are becoming larger.

Any fraction larger than 1/2 like 5/8 or 7/11.

The quotient will be less. 1/2 ÷ 2 = 1/4

2/3 is not a unit fraction ... all unit fractions must have 1 as a numerator 1/4 is a unit fraction

A unit fraction is any fraction with 1 in the numerator.

The answer depends on the sign of the numbers.(1/4) / 3 = 1/12, which is smaller.(-1/4) / 3 = -1/1, which is larger.

A unit fraction IS a fraction, but of a specific type where the numerator is 1. Thus 1/2, 1/3, 1/4, etc are all unit fractions.

It has "1" for the numerator.

31/1 or 63/2

1/2 is larger than 2/5

No 1km is not larger. Mile is a bigger unit.

km is a larger unit. 1 km = 1000 m

45 is an integer and since it is larger than 1 it cannot be expressed as a proper fraction.

A fraction of a fraction is yet another (usually smaller) fraction. For example 1/4 of 1/3 = (1x1) / (4x3) = 1/12 Only when both or one of the fractions is an "improper" fraction (larger than 1) does the multiplication give a result that is larger than the beginning fractions. For example : 7/4 x 3/5 = 21/20 = 1 1/20

If the denominator is larger than the numerator it is less than one. If the Numerator is larger it is greater than one. If they are both the same it is equal to one.
