An improper fraction is 'top-heavy' - for example 12/5 or 21/16
proper factions are fractions under a whole number improper fractions are Example: proper: 1/2 improper: 3/2
These are called improper fractions. For example 3/2.
Well there are different kinds of fractions their are mixed numbers, regular fractions and improper fractionsThere are 5 kinds of fraction. Proper fraction, improper fraction, mixed number, unit fraction, and equivalent fractions. An example of a proper fraction is 3/4. An example of an improper fractions is 13/12. An example of a mixed number is 1 1/4. An example of a unit fraction is 1/3. An example of equivalent fractions is 4/8=1/2.I hope you like my answer... :)
Some numbers are improper fractions and some are not. For example, 1/2 or 0.5 is a number but not an improper fraction. And there is no way in which you can express it as an improper fraction.
You don't. Proper fractions are less than one, improper fractions are greater.
you cant turn improper fractions into fractions but you can turn fractions into mixed numbers. to do this you see how many times the denominator goes into the numerator. for example: if your improper fraction is 7/5, 5 goes into 7 one time but there is two left over. you just put that two on top of your denominator and it turns out 1 and 2/5.
Mixed numbers can be converted to improper fractions. Improper fractions can be added the same way proper fractions are.
No, they are improper fractions. They can be equivalent to integers if the numerator is a multiple of the denominator.
Improper fractions have numerators that are greater than or equal to their denominators.
Some similarities of proper fraction and improper fraction are that they are both fractions.
Improper fractions can't become proper fractions.
example of improper fractions: 99/8, 70/8, 9/5, 6/4 example of proper fraction: 1/2, 3/4, 35/50, 99/100
When you talk about fractions, you do include improper fractions. However, an improper fraction such as 24/6 is hard, because it should really be called 4. Yes, an improper fraction can be defined as a TYPE of fraction.
Proper: Numerator less than denominator. Ex.: 5/8Improper: Numerator equal to or greater than denominator. Ex.: 9/4Mixed: a simplified improper fraction, with a whole number and a proper fraction. Ex.: 6 and 2/3---- There are 5 kinds of fraction. Proper fraction, improper fraction, mixed number, unit fraction, and equivalent fractions. An example of a proper fraction is 3/4. An example of an improper fractions is 13/12. An example of a mixed number is 1 and 1/4. An example of a unit fraction is 1/3. An example of equivalent fractions is 4/8 = 1/2.There are improper fractions which have a numerator with a higher value than the denominator (10/5, 15/7, etc).There are also proper fractions in which the denominator is a higher number than the numerator (4/7, 6/10,etc).There are mixed fractions which are improper fractions written with a number written to the left of the fraction (4 1/3), 10 1/2, etc).
In case of Proper fractions the numerator is lesser than the denominator. Whereas in case of improper fractions and mixed fractions the numerator is greater than denominator.
You change them into improper or topheavy fractions.
they are both fractions
Proper fractions are factions with a numerator lower than the denominator but an improper fraction has a greater numerator than the denominator
There are common fractions, improper fractions and equivalent fractions
here is an example if you want to convert an improper fraction 5 and 3\4 you would multiply the denominator 4 and the whole number 5 and then you add 3 the nominator so the answer would be 23 over 4
4/6 is a proper fraction. Proper fractions can't become improper fractions.
Mixed fractions can be converted into improper fractions then changed back to a mixed number.
Not always. There are times when division of fractions results in a non-improper fraction.
