4.5 as a decimal is 4.5. 4.5 is four ones and 1/2 of 1. So, as a mixed fraction, it would look like: 4 1/2. As an improper fraction, you would multiply the denominator by the number to the left of it, add the numerator to the product, and put the sum over the original denominator. 4x2=8. 8+1= 9. 9/2 is 4.5 as an improper fraction.

Okay... say you had the result to a sum of 67/16... this is an improper fraction. If you divide 16 into 67, it goes 4 times, with 3 left over so... the correct form of the improper fraction is 43/16 as a mixed number.

It depends on your level of numerical skill. You can convert the decimal to an approximate fraction and estimate the sum of the two fractions, or you can convert the fraction to an approximate decimal and estimate the sum of the two decimals or, if you are more able you just estimate their sum directly.

An improper fraction is when the numerator is a greater sum then the denominator. Example- 10/5. To change that into a proper fraction you divide the numerator by the denominator. Example - 2 1/5

Multiply the whole number by the denominator. Add the product to the numerator of the proper fraction. The sum is the numerator of the improper fraction. The denominator will stay the same.
