Worksheets for fraction multiplication

Create an unlimited supply of worksheets for multiplication of fractions and mixed numbers (grades 4-7)! The worksheets can be made in html or PDF format — both are easy to print. The html format is even editable. You can also customize them using the generator below.

Children begin their study of fraction multiplication by learning how to multiply a fraction by a whole number (such as 5 × 2/3) — typically in 4th grade. Then in 5th grade, they learn to multiply fractions by fractions and by mixed numbers. In 6th and 7th grades, students simply practice fraction multiplication using larger denominators and more complex problems.

Basic instructions for the worksheets

Each worksheet is randomly generated and thus unique. The answer key is automatically generated and is placed on the second page of the file.

You can generate the worksheets either in html or PDF format — both are easy to print. To get the PDF worksheet, simply push the button titled "Create PDF" or "Make PDF worksheet". To get the worksheet in html format, push the button "View in browser" or "Make html worksheet". This has the advantage that you can save the worksheet directly from your browser (choose File → Save) and then edit it in Word or other word processing program.

Sometimes the generated worksheet is not exactly what you want. Just try again! To get a different worksheet using the same options:

  • PDF format: come back to this page and push the button again.
  • Html format: simply refresh the worksheet page in your browser window.
