By year 4 most children will be confident with the concept of remainders after dividing. The next step is to ‘neaten up’ the division so that there is no remainder. What is left becomes part of the answer as a fraction.

It is easy to write the remainder as a fraction as is shown on this worksheet. The top number is the number or remainder that is left when the whole number has been divided. The bottom number is the number that you have been dividing by.

So 54 divided by 5 is 10 remainder 4 which can be written as 10 and 4 fifths (4/5).
