**Any whole number can be multiplied by a fraction. All you have to do is multiply the number by the numerator of the fraction.**

For example, multiply the number 5 by a fraction . To solve this example, multiply the number 5 by the numerator of the fraction

The answer is an improper fraction. Let's separate the whole part of the fraction:

If there are five whole pizzas and we take half of that number, we have two whole pizzas and half a pizza:

**Example 2.** Find the value of the expression

Multiply the number 3 by the numerator of the fraction

The answer is an improper fraction , but we extracted the whole part of it and got 2.

Also, you could have shortened the fraction. The result would have been the same. It would look like this:

If there are three whole pizzas and we take two thirds of that amount, we have two whole pizzas:

**Example 3.** Find the value of the expression

This example is solved in the same way as the previous ones. The whole and the numerator of the fraction must be multiplied:

**Example 4.** Find the value of the expression

Multiply the number 3 by the numerator of the fraction
