How to Find the Fraction of a Whole Number - Finding the fraction for a whole number is similar to multiplying a fraction with a number There is a simple method where any number can be represented in different formats such as percentage, decimal, mixed number, and fraction. These conversions are far easier with whole numbers. In order to solve the problem, you need to be familiar with the basic concept of division and multiplication. - Write the problem down. If you have a word problem, then you need to make sure that all the numbers are expressed properly. (1/3) x 7 - Multiply the whole number by the numerator. When you are working with the whole number, you only get to multiply the number by the numerator of the fraction. Throughout the method, the denominator remains the same. (1/3) x 7 = 7/3 - Divide the product then by the denominator of the fraction. The fraction in this step might seem like an improper fraction, which means that the numerator will be larger than the denominator or be reduced. The answer you will get will be: 2 1/3
