Make sure the denominators of all the fractions are common.Add all numerators.Reduce the final fraction to its simplest form.Convert improper fraction to mixed number if needed.

To find a volume you usually need to multiply values together. When working with mixed numbers it is usually easier to convert them into improper fractions, do the calculations and convert any resulting improper fraction into a mixed number. So you don't need to use either format, it's just that improper fractions are easier to manipulate.

Find the GCF of the numerator and the denominator and divide them both by it. If the GCF is 1, the fraction is in its simplest form.

Subtracting a mixed number is just subtracting fractions but with a whole number by a fraction. To subtract tun the mixed numbers into improper fractions and find the common denominator. Then you subtract the numerators.

you have to find like denominators and then you order them from least to greatest by there numerators

By definition, you can't convert between proper and improper fractions. You can convert improper fractions to mixed fractions, and vice versa.

Convert them to improper fractions, find a common denominator and proceed.

The answer depends on the binary operator between the two fractions which has not been specified.

They are called improper fractions because they are improper. In a proper fraction, the numerator is higher lower than the denominator. If you do have an improper fraction and you need to find an equivalent proper number, find it's mixed number. A mixed number is a whole number and a fraction. For example, 6/5 is equal to 1_1/5. Think of it this way. A fraction means a part of the whole thing. So if you have thirds, you can have 1/3/2/3 or 3/3 of the whole pie. Remember, if you have 3/3 that's the whole pie (3/3=1 whole) If you have 4/3 that's called imroper because it is written as a fraction when really it is a greater than a whole number becAUSE IT HAS MORE PARTS THAN NEEDED FOR ONE WHOLE. tHAT IS WHY ANYTHING WRITTEN AS A FRACTION WHICH SHOWS THE NUMERATOR LARGER THAN THE DENOMINATOR IS IMPROPER. 9/3 WOULD BE IMPROPER. aNY FRACTION WHOSE NUMERATOR AND DENOMINATOR ARE THE SAME 2/2 3/3 4/4.100/100 ARE EACH EQUAL TO 1 WHOLE.

Multiply the numerator by the numerator, and the denominator by the denominator. If you find this explanation unclear, take this example: 9/8 (improper fraction) x 3/4 (simple fraction) = 27/32 (answer)---if you can simplify it, do so. If it is a mixed number (e.g. 1 3/4), change the mixed number to an improper fraction and follow the steps above. The same applies to simple fraction multiplying by simple fraction.

An improper fraction is already in it's simplest form as long as in the fraction part the denominator is bigger then the numerator.

If the improper fraction is greter than 0 it is the value of the improper fraction and if the improper fraction is less than 0, it is the negative of the value of the fraction.
