Yes, it's a proper fraction. An improper fraction is a fraction where the numerator is higher than the denominator. Therefore, 4/4 is proper and 4/2 is improper.

Yes it can, this is known as an "improper fraction" and can be converted into a "mixed fraction."

Proper: Numerator less than denominator. Ex.: 5/8Improper: Numerator equal to or greater than denominator. Ex.: 9/4Mixed: a simplified improper fraction, with a whole number and a proper fraction. Ex.: 6 and 2/3---- There are 5 kinds of fraction. Proper fraction, improper fraction, mixed number, unit fraction, and equivalent fractions. An example of a proper fraction is 3/4. An example of an improper fractions is 13/12. An example of a mixed number is 1 and 1/4. An example of a unit fraction is 1/3. An example of equivalent fractions is 4/8 = 1/2.There are improper fractions which have a numerator with a higher value than the denominator (10/5, 15/7, etc).There are also proper fractions in which the denominator is a higher number than the numerator (4/7, 6/10,etc).There are mixed fractions which are improper fractions written with a number written to the left of the fraction (4 1/3), 10 1/2, etc).

The higher the denominator is larger considering that the numerator is equal.

To rename a mixed number to a fraction, you multiply the number outside the fraction by the denominator (the lower part of the fraction), and then you add that number to the numerator (higher number of the fraction). If you need to turn 2 3/4 into a fraction, you do this: 2*4=8, 8+3=11, so 2 3/4=11/4 as an improper fraction.

Yes. If the numerator (on top) is higher or equal to the denominator (bottom) than its an improper fraction. If the numerator and denominator are the same then the fraction is considered a whole number and always comes out 1. If the numerator is higher than the denominator then you must divide the numerator by the denominator.

you can leave it as an improper fraction OR you can divide the denominator INTO the numerator and end up with a mixed number EXAMPLE: 26/15 = 1 11/15

An improper fraction is a fraction with the numerator (the top number) being higher than the denominator (the bottom number). For example, 13/5 is an improper fraction because the top number is greater than the bottom number. To change it to a mixed number (which is a number with a fraction and a whole number), you divide the numerator by the denominator, which = 23/5

To convert an improper fraction (a fraction whom has a numerator higher that the denominator) simply divide the numerator by the denominator and place any remainders over the denominator.20 Ã· 6 = 3 2/6 or 3 1/3

When the numerators are the same, the fraction with the higher denominator is less than the fraction with the lower denominator. The denominator indicates the size of the "parts" being shown as a fraction, and the higher the denominator, the smaller those parts are!

The higher the denominator is larger considering that the numerator is equal.

They are called improper fractions because they are improper. In a proper fraction, the numerator is higher lower than the denominator. If you do have an improper fraction and you need to find an equivalent proper number, find it's mixed number. A mixed number is a whole number and a fraction. For example, 6/5 is equal to 1_1/5. Think of it this way. A fraction means a part of the whole thing. So if you have thirds, you can have 1/3/2/3 or 3/3 of the whole pie. Remember, if you have 3/3 that's the whole pie (3/3=1 whole) If you have 4/3 that's called imroper because it is written as a fraction when really it is a greater than a whole number becAUSE IT HAS MORE PARTS THAN NEEDED FOR ONE WHOLE. tHAT IS WHY ANYTHING WRITTEN AS A FRACTION WHICH SHOWS THE NUMERATOR LARGER THAN THE DENOMINATOR IS IMPROPER. 9/3 WOULD BE IMPROPER. aNY FRACTION WHOSE NUMERATOR AND DENOMINATOR ARE THE SAME 2/2 3/3 4/4.100/100 ARE EACH EQUAL TO 1 WHOLE.

To rename a mixed number to a fraction, you multiply the number outside the fraction by the denominator (the lower part of the fraction), and then you add that number to the numerator (higher number of the fraction). If you need to turn 2 3/4 into a fraction, you do this: 2*4=8, 8+3=11, so 2 3/4=11/4 as an improper fraction.

It can be; there is nothing wrong with that!
