Expanding and Reducing Fractions Two things you might be asked to do are expand and reduce (or simplify) fractions. Expanding a fraction means making it "bigger" while reducing a fraction means making it "smaller." Expanding Fractions Expanding fractions means making them "bigger." For example, let's say you ate 3/8 of that pizza, but your friend wanted to know how many sixteenths... read more

In order to divide fractions, you must flip (or invert) your second fraction. Taking the inverse of the second fraction means that you put the number that is the numerator on the bottom, and the number that is the denominator... read more
Fractions A fraction is a way of writing part of a number. It means that you do not have a whole number, but you do have part of a number. This would be similar to a pizza.
