between an Improper Fraction and a Mixed Fraction
whose numerator is more than or equal to its denominator is called Improper
Numerator > Denominator (Numerator is greater than Denominator)
8/5 is an improper fraction.
made up of a whole number and a proper number is called Mixed fraction.
5 is a whole number and ¾ is a proper fraction.
Changing a Mixed Fraction into Improper Fraction
multiply the whole number with denominator.
add product of whole number and denominator with numerator
Write the resultant number as numerator. Also write the denominator.
Example: Express as improper fraction.
Changing an Improper Fraction into Mixed Fraction
First divide the numerator by the denominator of the given number.
write down quotient (whole number) and the remainder we get becomes the
numerator of the resultant fraction.
Finally write the denominator of given number as denominator of the resultant
Example: Express as mixed fraction.
÷ 4 (Divide the numerator by denominator)
get quotient =4, remainder =3
First write quotient 4 which is a whole number. Then, write remainder 3 as
numerator and denominator will remain same.
