Composite Fraction Type

Shortcut Tricks are very important things in competitive exam. Time is the main factor in competitive exams. If you know how to manage time then you will surely do great in your exam. Most of us skip that part. Here in this page we give few examples on Composite fraction shortcut tricks. All tricks on composite fraction are provided here. Visitors are requested to carefully read all shortcut examples. These examples here will help you to better understand shortcut tricks on composite fraction.


Before doing anything we recommend you to do a math practice set. Choose any twenty math problems and write it down on a page. Using basic math formula do first ten maths of that page. You also need to keep track of the time. Write down the time taken by you to solve those questions. Now read our examples on composite fraction shortcut tricks and practice few questions. After doing this go back to the remaining ten questions and solve those using shortcut methods. Again keep track of the time. The timing will be surely improved this time. But this is not all you want. You need more practice to improve your timing more.

Few Important things to Remember

We all know that the most important thing in competitive exams is Mathematics. That doesn’t mean that other sections are not so important. But only math portion can leads you to a good score. A good score comes with practice and practice. You should do your math problems within time with correctness, and only shortcut tricks can give you that success. Again it does not mean that you can’t do maths without using shortcut tricks. You may have that potential to do maths within time without using any shortcut tricks.

But, so many people can’t do this. Here we prepared composite fraction shortcut tricks for those people. We try our level best to put together all types of shortcut methods here. But if you see any tricks are missing from the list then please inform us. Your little help will help so many needy.

A numerical quantity that is not a whole number,Suppose P/Q is represented as a Fraction in which we can called P as a Numerator and Q as a Denominator and when one fraction arranged in subtraction, addition form is called a composite fraction or mixed fraction or composite fraction type.



Example #1 – Composite Fraction Type

The Fraction number are given 4 / 5, 7 / 9, 19 / 29, 4 / 7 and arranged this fraction in ascending order of magnitude?

  1. At first we need to convert always fraction numbers so, converting each an every into decimal form, we get
  2. 4 / 5 = 0.80, 7 / 9 = 0.77, 19 / 29 = 0.65, 4 / 7 = 0.57.
  3. Now, arrange this number in ascending order like 0.57 > 0.65 >0.77>0.8 and 4 / 7>19 / 29>7 / 9>4 / 5.


Example #2 – Composite Fraction Type

The Fraction number are given 7 / 9, 13 / 17, 9 / 10, 16 / 19 arrange this fraction number into descending order form?
So this fraction numbers we convert as well as previous process but we arrange it in descending order.

  1. 7 / 9= 0.770, 13 / 17 = 0.764, 9 / 10 = 0.900, 16 / 19 = 0.842
  2. Arranged it descending order 0.900>0.842>0.770>0.764
  3. 9 / 10 > 16 / 19 > 7 / 9 > 13 / 17



Example #3 – Composite Fraction Type

What is original fraction ? If a fraction number of numerator is increased by 300% and the denominator increased by 500%, and the resultant fraction is 9 / 20.
Answer :
let consider numerator is x and denominator is y.
So x numerator increased according with 300% ,and y denominator increased by 500%.
X x 300 / 100 = 3x
Y x 500 / 100 = 5y
3x / 5y = 20 / 9
4x = 3y
x / y = 3 / 4
So the original fraction should be 3 / 4.
