Best Answer

You would turn the mixed number into a fraction by multiplying the whole number(the one in the mixed fraction) by the denominator and then you add the numerator to the product. You would then put that number you get and out it over the denominator. For the other whole number, you would put it over one and multiply the two fractions!

You multiply the whole number by the denominator and then you add that number to he numerator

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.

It is often a fraction but can be a mixed or whole number.
