### How do you change a proper fraction to a whole number?

A proper fraction is one in which the numerator is less than the denominator.That means that the value of the fraction is less than '1', so it can't be changedto a whole number.If you have an IMPROPER fraction ... one in which the numerator is more than the denominator ...then it can be changed to a whole number plus a proper fraction, like this:-- Divide the numerator by the denominator, to get the whole number, and a remainder.-- Write the proper fraction. Keep the original denominator, place the remainder in the numerator.

### Why do you have to multiply or divide both the numerater and denominator of a fraction to find an equivalent fraction?

Whatever you multiply or divide the numerator by, you must do the same to the denominator. If you multiply or divide the numerator and denominator by different numbers, you change the value of the fraction and turn it into a different number. After that, nothing is "equivalent" any more ... you're working with a changed number.

### What do you turn the second fraction into in a dividing problem?

When dividing by a fraction, the second fraction (the divisor) is changed into its reciprocal by swapping the numerator and denominator over (turning it upside down) and then it is multiplied by the first number (fraction).

### Why do you have to multiply or divide both numerator and denominator of a fraction to find an equivalent fraction?

if you multiply a number by a certain factor and then divide it by the same factor you do not change anything. It is like multiplying by 1. If you multiply only the numerator you have changed the answer and it is not equivalent.

### How do you change 123.456 into a fraction?

123.456 is changed into fraction by multiplying and dividing it by a number such that both denominator and numerator don't contain decimal. Multiplying and dividing by 100, we get 123.456 as 123456/100.

### How do you make a proper fraction an improper fraction?

Improper fractions are those for which the numerator (top number) is larger than the denominator (bottom number). When they are changed to proper fractions, they are actually mixed numbers (a whole number and a fraction). In order to convert a mixed number to an improper fraction, multiply the whole number and the denominator, then add the numerator. Then, put you answer over the denominator of the fraction. For example: 5 3/8 5 times 8 equals 40, 40 plus 3 is 43. 43 becomes the numerator and 8 is still the denominator. 5 3/8 equals 43/8.

### How can a fraction be changed to a percent?

To write a fraction as a percent, find an equivalent fraction with denominator 100, if it is possible, then the numerator represent the fraction as a percent.

### If you multiply the denominator and numerator by the same number why do you get equivalent fraction?

### What is 256 changed into a fraction?

### What is 16 changed into a fraction?
