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.

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.
(1 x 36) / 4
= 36 / 4
Question: Find 3/4 of 20
(3 x 20) / 4
= 60 / 4
