Directions: Using the digits 0 through 9 at most one time, place a digit in each box to make a true equation.

### Hint

How can you make sure that your product is a mixed number?

Are there some two-digit numbers that don’t divide equally into groups?

How can you rename fractions so that you don’t use the same digit more than once?

Wow. This took me a while… 8 tries. But very satisfying.

2/4 x 15 = 7 3/6

3/4 x 09 = 6 3/4

1/3 x 08 = 2 6/9

If zero cannot be used to start the two-digit number:

1/4 x 23 = 5 6/8

1/8 *60=7 2/4

5/6 x10= 8 3/9

1/8 x 76 = 9 2/4

2/8 x 37=9 1/4

If zero can be used to start the two-digit number:

5/6 x 09 = 7 4/8

5/6 x 09 = 7 1/2

2/4 x 05= 7 and 3/6

3/8 x 06 = 2 1/4

4/3 x 07 = 9 2/6

1/2 x 07 = 3 4/8

5/4 x 06=7 1/2

3/4 x 07 = 5 2/8

6/8 x 07 = 5 1/4
