If a fraction was written as a mixed number and then turned into an improper fraction you've went backwards instead of on the correct path. You need to return an improper fraction to a proper fraction (mixed number).

55/12 is an example of a improper fraction. We simply divide the top number into the bottom number. 55 ÷ 12 = 4.xxxxx.

So we have our whole number. 4. Now we need our fractional part. 4 x 12 = 48. 55 - 48 = 7. Now we have the amount of parts left over always place it back over the original denominator.

Now we have our entire mixed number. 4 7/12
