False. What has been described is a MIXED fraction. An improper fraction is one whose numerator (top) is greater than or equal to its denominator (bottom). 3/2 is an improper fraction, equivalent to the mixed fraction 1 1/2
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.
A mixed number.
An improper fraction is made up of a whole number and a fraction. For example, 1 3/4. 1 is the whole number and 3/4 is the fraction.
Convert to an improper fraction. Then solve. Let me know if you need to know how to tun a fraction into a decimal of a mixed number to an improper fraction please add a example ok 7 9 so you do this covert the improper fraction just like they did up there ok just read what it says
A fraction is made up of two parts: a numerator (top number) and a denominator (bottom number). There are 3 types of fractions: Proper, Improper, Mixed. A proper fraction is one where the numerator is smaller than the denominator. An improper fraction is one where the numerator is larger or equal to the denominator. A mixed fraction is one with a whole number and a proper fraction together. 11 1/8 is a mixed fraction, and can be written as the improper fraction 89/8. It is impossible to write it as a proper fraction because the numerator is larger than the denominator. Also, all mixed fractions are improper fractions and no improper fractions can be written as proper fractions.
You can't. A mixed number is the sum of a whole number and a proper fraction. 253 is a whole number, and if you split it up into a fraction, it would consist of a whole number and an improper fraction.
To subtract an improper fraction from a whole number, turn the whole number into a fraction with the same denominator as the improper fraction. Then minus. All whole numbers actually have a "1" as a denominator, we just don't write it (it's assumed.) E.g 10 = (10/1) 20 = (20/1) etc... to change the denominator to the same as the improper fraction, multiply the whole number (that is now a fraction over "1") by the denominator of the improper fraction. E.g Let the improper fraction be 17/4, and your real number be 20. From above, we know that 20 is the same as "20/1", with "1" as the denominator. You want this "1" to be "4", so multiply the real number by "4/4" (which is essentially multiplying by 1, so doesn't mess up how big the fraction is) 20/1 x 4/4 = 80/4. Now the denominators of both fractions are the same, you can minus the improper fraction from the whole number. i.e 80/4 - 17/4 = 63/4 Which is actually 15 3/4 .
An improper fraction has the top number ( numerator ) equal to or larger than the bottom number ( denominator ) such as 100 / 50 . So divide the bottom number into the top number to get a whole number and any remainder would show up as a proper fraction. Thus 100/50 = 2 and 103/50 = 2 and 3/50
No it is not It makes up one and two thirds, a fraction.
