It would be easier to answer, if you gave a specific example. You need to look for cue words like those given in capitals below.

How many times does 1/2 GO INTO 7 1/2? This indicates division. Change the expression of the mixed number and solve. 7 1/2 = 15/2

If a person could run 1 1/2 miles in 10 minutes, how far could he run in an hour? (Since an hour = 60 minutes, this is 6 TIMES 10 minutes.)

Although I cannot give you cues that will apply to all problems, I hope that this give you a good idea. Thanks for asking.
