You can make a fraction that is bigger, or smaller, than a mixed number.

It can be either. It is the number at the top of a fraction.

an improper fraction

No. A number multiplied by a fraction yields a smaller number

It is called a top-heavy fraction. This is called an improper fraction. Example: 45/42 -

If a fraction's denominator is increased, the number gets smaller. If a fraction's denominator is decreased, the number gets bigger.

how do you draw an picture for an improper fraction

because the denominator is a bigger number so it is called improper because the denominator is a bigger number so it is called improper

mixed number

No, it isn't. The bigger the denominator (bottom number), the smaller the fraction ~x

Well 1/49 is greater than 1/50 because the smaller the fraction, the bigger the number.

If the numerators are the same then a fraction with a bigger denominator is smaller than a fraction with a biiger denominator. The bigger the number you divide by, the smalller each bit is.

A proper fraction has the top number (the numerator) smaller than the bottom number (the denominator).

smaller

No, it is smaller. Bigger number- smaller number = + number 2-1.8 = 0.2

When the numerator of a fraction is smaller than the denominator, that's a proper fraction.

It is bigger

The number is bigger.

if you want to subtract a bigger number from a smaller one, first subtract smaller number from bigger one add negative sign in front of answer you got

Yes it is. A regular fraction is a fraction where the numerator is smaller than the denominator, thus the value of the fraction will always be less than one. Note that a fraction with it's numerator bigger than the denominator does not count as a regular fraction; it is called a improper fraction. Whereas a mixed fraction is a regular fraction with a whole number at the left that is at least one. Thus, the value of a mixed fraction will always be more than one.

Not necessarily. When you divide by a fraction, the answer can be bigger than both of them. 6 ÷ 1/5 = 30

The answer is always bigger than one only if the fraction you are dividing by is smaller than the fraction you are dividing into. Any number divided by a smaller number is bigger than 1. To divide fractions you invert he demominator and multiply: 1/2 divided by 1/4 = 1/2 times 4 = 2

There are a couple rules to abide by when reducing fraction in math. To make an even fraction, one has to make sure that the smaller number is on top. To make an improper fraction, put the bigger number on top.
