To find the reciprocal of a whole number, you must first write it as a fraction. You do this by writing x/1, if the number is 4, it would be 4/1. Then you would find the reciprocal of that fraction. So using the same example, the reciprocal of 4 is 1/4.

-- Any number that you can completely write down using digits, and a decimal point or fraction bar if needed, is rational. -- A rational number is defined as one that can be written as a fraction using whole numbers. -19 can be written as the fraction -19/1 .

15/4 = 3.75 OR 3 3/4 39/13 = 3 To make a mixed number you make as many whole numbers as possible and then place the leftover fraction next to it. To make a decimal simply make as many whole numbers as possible. Then divide 100 by the denominator (bottom number) of the fraction and multiply that number by the numerator (top number); the number you get is the decimal and goes after the decimal point.

Two is a whole with no parts to it so it will be written like this: 2.

To convert a mixed number to an improper fraction, multiply the whole number part with the denominator, add the numerator and write the sum over the denominator. Basically what this means is, you multiply the whole number of the mixed number times the denominator of the fraction part. After that, you add the numerator to the product. Finally, you replace the numerator with the product, keep the denominator the same, and get rid of the whole number.
