# Word Problems - Fractions (multiplication) (with mixed numbers)

**Description: **This packet helps students practice solving word problems that require multiplication with mixed numbers. Each page has a set of 7 problems. Each page also has a speed and accuracy guide to help students see how fast and how accurately they should be doing these problems. After doing all 14 problems, students should be more comfortable doing these problems and have a clear understanding of how to solve them.

Gabe is barely 2$\dfrac{3}{5}$ years old. He has spent $\dfrac{1}{3}$ of his life sleeping or crying. How much of his short life has Gabe spent either sleeping or crying in years?

Emily needs enough fabric for 3$\dfrac{1}{2}$ hats, since she has half a hat done already. If each hat requires 1$\dfrac{2}{7}$ feet of fabric, how much fabric will she need to make the 3$\dfrac{1}{2}$ hats?

Practice problems require knowledge of how to add, subtract, and multiply whole numbers.
