An improper fraction is 'top-heavy' - for example 12/5 or 21/16

When the top number (the numerator) of a fraction is greater than the bottom number (the denominator) then this is said to be an improper fraction. The formal definition is that an improper fraction occurs when the absolute value of the numerator is greater than or equal to the absolute value of the denominator.

The naswer will depend on what you mean by "doing" top heavy fractions.

A top heavy fraction is one in which the top number is greater than the bottom number, such as 7/5. Top heavy fractions are not excepted as final answers. A mixed number is one where the top number is divided into the bottom number, so that it is not top heavy, such as 1 2/5, which is the same as 7/5.

You divide the top number by the bottom number.
