you first need to know your denominator. lets use 43/8 as our example of an improper fraction.
8 is the denominator. now look at the numerator. the numerator is 43. how many times does 8 go into 43. well it goes into 43 5 times. therefore your first number ofyour mixed number is 5
5 times 8 is 40. your number is 43. this means you have 3 left over. you put this number as your new numerator over top your old denominator. and you havethis...
5 3/8 is equal to 43/8
divide the numerator by the denominator
You convert the mixed numeral into an improper fraction. Now subtract the improper fraction from the whole number by putting the whole number over 1.
Here is a video tutorial https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HPetBqWKvZM on how to change an improper fraction to a mixed number.
You do the numerator divided by the denominator, then simplify the fractions if you can. (this is how you change a improper fraction to a mixed number, you cannot change a proper fraction to a mixed number)
If its not an improper fraction then you cant....
You change it into an improper fraction, then simplify it, then if you want to, change it back to a mixed number.
An improper fraction is a fraction. It can't become a proper fraction.
I don't think you can but, you can change an improper fraction to a decimal.
A mixed number can be converted to an improper fraction.
Change the mixed number to an improper fraction and then divide.
Find it out yourself
First you would want to change the mixed number to an improper fraction. Then you can subtract
You change them into improper or topheavy fractions.
By changing the mixed number into an improper fraction and ensuring that they both have the same denominators simply then subtract one improper fraction from the other improper fraction.
Multiply the denominator and the whole number then add the numerator Ex 4 3/4 = 19/4
2/3 is a common fraction. 3/2 is an improper fraction and can be changed to a mixed numeral by division.
change it to an improper fraction and then divide it
divide by 3
change it to an improper fraction and then do it
Mixed Numeral: 1 1/2Improper Fraction: 3/2
