You do not!3 is a whole number, 7/3 is a fraction.If you multiply the whole number by the fraction you get 3*(7/3) = 7, which is larger not smaller.

A whole number and a fraction make up a mixed number as for example 2 and 3/5

Change the fraction part into a decimal. If the decimal is great than or equal to 0.5, round the whole number up. If it is lower, than drop the fraction altogether. Ex: 6 2/3 2/3 = .666 .666 > .5 6 2/3 rounded to the nearest whole number is 7.

A proper fraction is a fraction who's numerator is smaller than the denominator. An improper fraction is a fraction who's numerator is larger than or equal to the denominator. 1/2 is a proper fraction. 3/2 is an improper fraction. Now to understand why the improper fraction is larger than the proper fraction, lets split them up. The proper fraction is one half of a whole, whereas the improper fraction is one whole and one half. Basically the proper is one half, and the improper is three halves. In theory, a proper fraction is always less than the whole number under consideration. On the other hand, an improper fraction is either equal to or larger than the whole number under consideration.
