There is no specific name. -3 is greater than -4 and (-3)/(-4) = 3/4 is a positive proper fraction. 3 is greater than -4 and 3/(-4) = -3/4 is a negative proper fraction. 3 is greater than -2 and 3/(-2) = -3/2 is a negative improper fraction. 4 is greater than 3 and 4/3 is a positive improper fraction. Thus, the fraction can be negative or positive, proper or improper.

What is a fraction in which the numerator is larger than the denominator?

Its an improper fraction...which looks like this: 3/2 or 8/3 or 5/2 and many many more :) The way you turn an improper fraction into a mixed fraction (mixed number) is by seeing how many times the denominator goes into the nuerator the number you get is your whole then the remainder is your numerator and the denominator from the improper fraction will be the same denominator in your mixed fraction(mixed number is the same thing as mixed fraction) EXAMPLE: 3/2 2 goes into 2 once so thats my whole: 1 then 1 is left over because 2x1=2 so thats my new numerator then the denominator stays the same so your mixed fraction(mixed number) is 1 1/2

How do you change a percent into a ratio?

Put the percent over 100 to make a fraction. Then simplify the fraction and you have the ratio. ex.) 1. 50% 2. 50/100 (thats the fraction 50 over 100) 3. 1/2 (I divided both the numerator and denominator both by 50) 4. 1:2 (thats your ratio)

How do you subtract a mixed number and a fraction?

take the denominator from the mixed number and multiply it by the whole number on the mixed number. take your answer and add the numerator from the mixed number. take your answer and make it the numerator of a new fraction,but take the old denominator from the mixed number and make that the new denominator.take your new fraction and try to get a common denominator with the other fraction. when they both have the same denominator then sounds complicated, i know. example:1 1/3 - 2/6, then turn the mixed number to 4/3 by following the steps. so now you have 4/3 - 2/6. Then multiply 4/3 x 2/2 so you get 8/6. now you subtract, 8/6 - 2/6 = 6/6. but 6/6 equals 1,so thats an answer.

How do you add the top number of the unlike fraction?

You find the least common denominator and then you see how many times the denominator of the actual fraction goes into it, then you multiply that by how many times it goes into the least common denominator, then you just do it for the other fraction as well, example:6/9+3/7= The least common denominator is 56 bcuz 9 and 7 dont go into eachother, then you find how many times 9 goes into 56: which is 7 so you multiply it by 6 and you have 56/56= 1 whole, so thats the first fraction and you do the same thing to the nextYou can go to YouTube to find GREAT videos!Josh W.

Do you add the denominator when you add fractions?

No but the denominators must be the same and you just add the numerators. If the denominators are different and you have to find which is greater you have to find a denominator that both numbers can multiply into. For example, 5/6 and 3/12 will be our fractions. 6 times to equals 12. Since 12 is the other denominator 3/12 stays the same. Thats the only time you can change the denominator.
