First of all, the proper question is how to turn a mixed number into a improper fraction. First you multiply the denominator times the whole number. For example, what is two and three fourths as an improper fraction, you would multiply 2 times 4 and get 8. Next step, then you add what you got from multiplying your denominator times the whole number to what you have as part of your fraction. ex. you would add 8 plus 3 in 2 and 3 fourths and get 11 fourths. or use a calculator.

When is it necessaryto rename a mixed number when subtracting?

When doing sums with mixed numbers, it is often easier to convert the mixed numbers to improper fractions, do the sum and convert any resulting improper fraction back to a mixed number. This is especially true of division, but with subtraction, if the fraction part of the second mixed number is larger than the fraction part of the first mixed number (subtracting the second from the first), this will result in requiring borrowing from the whole number of the first mixed number. Using improper fractions avoids this complication and makes all sums easier.
