Express 5 × 1/3 as a fraction.
A fraction is a ratio of numbers with an upper value denoting numerator, and a lower one denoting denominator.
Answer: The required fraction will be 5 / 3.
Any number can be represented in the form of a fraction.
A fraction is made up of two parts. The number on the top of the line is called the numerator. The number below the line is called the denominator. It depicts the total divisible number of equal parts the whole into or the total number of equal parts which are there in a collection.
In this case, we need to express 5 × 1 / 3 as a fraction.
For the numerator, multiply the numerator from 1 / 3 to 5, that is, 1 × 5.
Thus numerator of the fraction = 5
The denominator can simply be taken from that of 1/ 3, that is, 3
Thus, the required fraction will be 5 / 3.
