ok, you have for example 13/10

you would put the 13 into the 10,

so, how many times does the 13 go into 10? once.

and how much is left over? 3.

so you would say the answer is 1 3/10 (one whole and three tenths)

Example:

Converting 27/10 to mixed number:

Divide the numerator by the denominator.

The remainder will be the numerator of the fractional part.

27/10:

= 27 ÷10

= 2 r7

= 2 7/10

It's simple.

Let's say you want to convert 3 1/5.

You multiply the five and the three (you get fifteen) and then you add 1 to fifteen, then put the number over five.

So, therefore the answer is 16/5.

[Simplified]

Multiply the bottom number of the fraction to the whole number.

When you multiply them, add the top number of the fraction to that total.

When you get that, put it over the bottom fraction number.

Voila. You're done.thanks

Proper fractions can't become improper fractions. It wouldn't be proper.

You cannot in the sense of conversion.

The absolute value of a proper fraction is less than 1 while the absolute value of an improper fraction is greater than 1.

The only way to turn a proper [positive] fraction into an improper one is to add a number to it or multiply it by something so as to make it larger than 1.

The variable "a" can be given to any number, fraction or mathematical value.
