First you convert the fraction. Example: 2 3/4 - 1 6/9. 2 gives 3 a "boost" to 4/4. Now it is 1 4/4. Then you find the LCD ( least common denomitator) which is 36. 1 4/4 is now 1 36/36 and 2 6/9 is 2 24/36. Last thing you do is subtract 1 36/36 and 2 24/36. But first you put the greater number or "mixed number" before the lowest number. So 2 24/36- 1 36/36= 1 12/36 and reduce it to 1 1/3. Hopefully I am right because I have no clue how to subtract mixed numbers.

mixed numbers

Convert the mixed number to an improper fraction and proceed normally.

The question is ambiguous. Do you want to know how to multiply a fraction by a whole number, as well as by a mixed number? Or are you asking how to multiply a whole number by a mixed number and express the product as a fraction? Or what?

You make it an improper fraction and switch the bottom and top numbers
