Convert the mixed number to an improper fraction. Convert the whole number to a fraction with a common denominator. Proceed with the subtraction.

a fraction where the numerator and the denominator are of the same value

A fraction can have non-zero whole number value when the improper fraction is such that the numerator is an exact (whole number) multiple (which is not zero) of the denominator will the fraction have a whole number value. for example 10/5 = (5×2)/(5×1) = 2/1 = 2 ÷ 1 = 2.

fraction

A term for a number that has no decimal or fraction is called a whole number.

It would be a mixed fraction, or simply a fraction.

A fraction is generally not a whole number, so you can't "make it into a whole" - any whole number would not have the same value. You can round a fraction to the nearest integer, if you like - but note that you would lose some precision if you do so.

There is no intrinsic fraction for MM. If something is measured as a whole number of MM then it is an integer value, not a fraction.

The answer can be another fraction and a whole number or it can be a whole number.

a fraction cannot be a whole number

You can make any whole number into a fraction by putting it over 1.

There is no such number. Any whole number can be turned into a fraction simply by writing it over 1. Or, writing twice its value over 2; or three times its value over 3.

You can convert a whole number to an equivalent fraction by multiplying it by the denominator of the fraction you're subtracting 5 - 3/8 = 40/8 - 3/8 = 37/8 = 4 and 5/8

When the numerator and denominator are of the same value.

It increases the value.

The numerator of the fraction is multiplied by the whole number.

A number which is not a whole number. It could be a fraction whose absolute value is less than one or a mixed (r improper) fraction, an irrational number, an imaginary or complex number, and so on.

The mixed number consists of a whole number and a fraction. Multiply the denominator of the fraction portion by the whole number and to this product add the numerator of the fraction portion. This value is the numerator of the new improper fraction. The denominator of the new improper fraction is the same as the denominator of the original fraction portion of the mixed number.

When multiplying a fraction by a whole number, you should rewrite the whole number as a fraction. Do this by placing the number over a denominator of one.

A number can be called either a mixed number or a mixed fraction when it is a whole number with a fraction.

You cannot. By definition, a proper fraction is a number whose absolute value is between 0 and 1. There are no whole numbers between 0 and 1 so the number cannot be changed into a whole number. Also, since the absolute value is less than 1, it cannot be expressed as a mixed number.

It is the first whole number divided by the denominator of the unit fraction. This could be a whole number or a fraction.

Any whole number into a fraction is whole number over 1. Whole number = x Fraction = x/1

2 - 1/5 is the same as (10/5) - 1/5 so it is 9/5 or 1 and 4/5 (1.8 as a decimal)

As long as the whole number is not zero, it becomes a unit fraction with a larger denominator, ie one with a smaller value.
