That's a proper fraction. Fractions can be either proper or improper and can't change.

A proper fraction is one whose modulus is less than one whole an improper fraction is one whose modulus is greater than one. The reciprocal of a proper faction is an improper fraction.

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

I don't think you can but, you can change an improper fraction to a decimal.

Say we had 2 ½, so we would work it out like 4⁄4,+ 4⁄4 + ¼ = 9⁄4. The 9⁄4 is the improper fraction.

4/9 is a proper fraction and there is not an improper version.4/9 is a proper fraction and there is not an improper version.4/9 is a proper fraction and there is not an improper version.4/9 is a proper fraction and there is not an improper version.

To change an improper fraction to a proper fraction a person has to find the lowest common denominator. For example, the fraction 3/6 can be broken down to 1/2 by dividing the 6 by the 3 and finding the common denominator to be 2.

Improper fraction is greater than a proper fraction.

1/35 is a proper fraction. Proper fractions can't be improper.

You can't. Improper and proper fractions are two different things. You can convert an improper fraction to a mixed number.

Improper Fraction.

Fractions can be proper or improper, one cannot change one to the other.

A proper fraction is when its numerator is less than its denominator and an improper fraction or top heavy fraction is when its numerator is greater than its denominator.

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)

A proper fraction is a fraction who's numerator is smaller than the denominator. An improper fraction is a fraction who's numerator is larger than or equal to the denominator. 1/2 is a proper fraction. 3/2 is an improper fraction. Now to understand why the improper fraction is larger than the proper fraction, lets split them up. The proper fraction is one half of a whole, whereas the improper fraction is one whole and one half. Basically the proper is one half, and the improper is three halves. In theory, a proper fraction is always less than the whole number under consideration. On the other hand, an improper fraction is either equal to or larger than the whole number under consideration.

7/6 is an improper fraction. Improper fractions can't be proper fractions. It wouldn't be proper.
