Change the whole number into an improper fraction with the same denominator as the fraction and then subtract accordingly

A whole number to an improper fraction:First lets define an improper fraction. An improper fraction is a fraction at which the numerator (top) is greater than the denominator (bottom).To change a whole number to an improper fraction you simply add a one to the bottom of your whole number. For example, 5 would be 5/1 in improper fraction form. 6 would be 6/1 an so forth.

Simply perform the division that the fraction indicates.

This question looks a little turned around. You can't change a proper fraction to an improper one unless you add something to it and improper fractions don't have whole numbers. To change an improper fraction to a mixed number (a whole number with a fraction) divide the denominator into the numerator. The result is the whole number. The remainder gets put over the original denominator. 22/7 = 3 and 1/7

you have to change it into a improper fraction then divide the numerator into the domnator

24/12 = 12

No, it is not an improper fraction. It is a whole number.

An improper fraction cannot be converted to a whole number, since the two are not equivalent.

You just take any denominator, (which is the second number in a fraction) and any whole number and multiply that denominator by the whole number to get an improper fraction, say you choose, the whole number 16 and the denominator 4, multiply 4 by 16 and get 64, your improper fraction will be 64/4.

You can't. A mixed number is the sum of a whole number and a proper fraction. 253 is a whole number, and if you split it up into a fraction, it would consist of a whole number and an improper fraction.

When the remainder is zero the answer is a whole number. Put that number over 1 for an improper fraction.

You change the mixed number to an improper fraction, multiply its denominator by the whole number. Then, if required, convert back to a mixed fraction.

Whole number

An improper fraction

Write it as a fraction with denominator 1. For example, 5 = 5/1.

Proper fractions are less than 1, so they can't change into whole numbers. Some improper fractions can change into whole numbers. 4/2 = 2 Most improper fractions change into mixed numbers (a whole number with a fraction) To change an improper fraction to a mixed number, divide the denominator into the numerator. The result is the whole number. The remainder gets put over the original denominator. 22/7 = 3 and 1/7

You convert the mixed numeral into an improper fraction. Now subtract the improper fraction from the whole number by putting the whole number over 1.

mixed # into an improper fraction: multiply the whole number by the denominator(bottom number ont he fraction) then add that number to the numberator(the top number of the fraction. and that's it! improper fraction into a mised number: divide the numberator by the denominator. whatever WHOLE number you get is your number, now for the fraction. whatever you got as the remander when you divided but that on top of the fration. ex 47/5. 5 goes into 47 9 times with a remander of 2. that equals 9 and 2/5.

multiply the denominator by the whole number then add the numerator and you have an improper fraction

I don't know why you'd want to, but to change a whole number to an improper fraction, square it and put the square over the original number. 9/3 = 3

So if you have the whole number 3,the fraction will be 6/6.

change it into an improper fraction, then convert it to a decimal. Or just divide the fraction and add the whole number at the end.

34 is not even a fraction. It is a whole number.

Yes.

no because it is a whole number
