4+2=6

6=75%

(I’m pretty sure v sorry if its wrong I’ve not done this for a while hahaha)

explanation: If you’ve ready any of our fraction walkthroughs before, you’ll know we always kick the show off with a quick recap for the kids. The number above the dividing line is the numerator, and the number below the line is the denominator. Simple stuff but sometimes we can all get a little forgetful!

To visualize the question we are trying to solve, let’s put 5/8 and 75 side-by-side so it’s easier to see: 5/8 ÷ 75
