Best Answer

Divide the numerator by the denominator. The number above the line is the whole number and the remainder over the divisor is the fraction.

For example: 37/5

Divide 37 by 5. The whole number is 7 (5 X 7 is 35). The remainder is 2, so the fraction is 2/5.

The mixed number is 7 2/5.

First you would want to change the mixed number to an improper fraction. Then you can subtract

You change them into improper or topheavy fractions.

I wouldconvert both to improper fraction,find a common multiple (CM),calculate equivalent fraction with CM as the denominator,add the numerators,change the improper fraction to a mixed fraction, if required,simplify the fractional part of the mixed fraction - if appropriate and required.

An improper fraction is a fraction. It can't become a proper fraction.

You change it into an improper fraction, then simplify it, then if you want to, change it back to a mixed number.

You do the numerator divided by the denominator, then simplify the fractions if you can. (this is how you change a improper fraction to a mixed number, you cannot change a proper fraction to a mixed number)
