Best Answer

You can only make a fraction into a mixed number if the top number (numerator) is larger than the bottom number (denominator) by dividing.For example, we have


23/4

we can see that 23 (numerator) is larger than 4 (denominator)


To get to a mixed number, 23 is divided by 4.

How many times does 4 go into 23?

4x1=4

4x2=8

4x3=12

4x4=16

4x5=20

4x6=24

So 4 goes into 23, 5 times with a reminder of 3.

so the mixed number is 5 3/4


If the fraction was 20/4, simplifying it to a whole number would be 5.

How do you make a mixed number in to an improper fraction?

The mixed number consists of a whole number and a fraction. Multiply the denominator of the fraction portion by the whole number and to this product add the numerator of the fraction portion. This value is the numerator of the new improper fraction. The denominator of the new improper fraction is the same as the denominator of the original fraction portion of the mixed number.

How do you divide a whole number by a mixed number?

To divide a whole number by a mixed number, you must first make the mixed number an improper fraction. You can do this by multiplying the denominator (the bottom number) by the whole number and adding the numerator (the top number) to the product. Once you have done this, take the reciprocal of the improper fraction (simply switch the two numbers around) and multiply it the whole number. Multiply everything out, make it a mixed number, and you're done. (Note: You may have to make the whole number a fraction to multiply it properly. To do this, simply place the whole number in the numerator and make the denominator 1.)

How do your borrow from a whole number when subtracting fractions?

A mixed number has a whole number and a fraction. A fraction is a number that is less than whole and that has a denominator underneath a numerator. To add or subtract mixed numbers, add or subtract the fractions, then add or subtract the whole numbers. If the fraction portion of a mixed number, such as 2 5/6, is more than the fraction portion of the mixed number you're trying to subtract from, such as 3 1/6, you must borrow from the whole number of the mixed number you're trying to subtract from to make its fraction bigger...
