Best Answer

Divide the numerator by the denominator to give a quotient and remainder.

The quotient is the whole number, the remainder is the numerator, the denominator being the same as the original fraction.

For example the improper fraction 17/4 in mixed form:

17 / 4 = 4 remainder 1 (since 17 = 4 x 4 + 1).

so 17/4 = 4 1/4
