Main Activity:

Again, today's learning is something a bit new, but I know you can all do it if you stay positive

When you are multiplying mixed numbers by an integer (a whole number), the easiest way is to multiply the whole number first, then the fraction and then add your answers together.

e.g. 

1 1/2 (one and a half) x 3 =

1 x 3 = 3

1/2 x 3 = 3/2  which is the same as 1 1/2 (one and a half)

3 + 1 1/2 = 4 1/2
