# How do I Calculate a Fraction of any Whole Number?

#### What is a Fraction?

It is a numerical quantity that is will never be a whole number, e.g. 1/5 or 0.2.

Let me rephrase it, A Fraction is always a few parts of a whole number.

1 is not the fraction but the whole number, and the rest of the numerical values are the fraction.

## Who do I find a fraction of a whole number?

Watch this short video for the answer.

Hope you now know how you can easily find a fraction of any whole number.

### Another method to find a fraction of the whole number

**Method: **Multiply the whole number with the numerator and then what you get after multiplication that needs to be divided by denominator.

**So what are numerator and denominator?**

If the fraction is 3/8, the numerator is 3 and the denominator is 8.

The number above the line in a fraction is the numerator.

The number below the line in a fraction is the denominator.

**Question: Find 2/3 of 18.**

**Solution: **In 2/3, the numerator is 2 and the denominator is 3. The whole number here is 18.

- Multiplying the numerator with Whole number 2 x 18 = 36
- Now dividing what we got by denominator = 36/3 = 12

**So the answer is 12.**

### The formula for quick calculation

(numerator x whole number) / denominator

**Question: Get 1/4 of 36.**

**Solution:**

(1 x 36) / 4

= 36 / 4

= 9

**Question: Find 3/4 of 20**

**Solution: **

(3 x 20) / 4

= 60 / 4

= 15
