A fraction in which numerator is less than denominator
is called proper fraction. In a proper fraction the denominator shows the number
of parts into which the whole is divided and the numerator shows the number of
parts which have been considered. Therefore, in a proper fraction the numerator
is always less than the denominator.
5/8, 1/4, 13/17, 4/9
An improper fraction is a fraction where the numerator
is greater than or equal to the denominator.
7/3, 11/4, 5/2
A mixed number is a number consisting of a whole number
and a proper fraction.
Improper Fraction into Mixed Number
Divide the numerator by the denominator.
Write the quotient as the whole number.
Quotient = 8
Then write down any remainder as new numerator above
Mixed Fraction into Improper Fraction
First multiply the whole number with
Then add product of whole number and
denominator with numerator
Write the resultant number as numerator.
Also write the denominator.
5 x 4 +3 = 23
Improper Fraction = 23/4
