In order to turn a whole number into an improper fraction you need to decide what fraction you want it to be. Turning a whole number into an improper fraction allows you to chose any fraction.

E.G 1/2; 1/3; 1/4; 1/5; ECT...

After you have chosen what fraction, for this example I will chose quarters, take the full fraction, in this case 4/4 and the top number by the unit you have.

E.G #1:

My Whole Number Is - 12

My Fraction is 4/4

4*12 = 48

48/4 therefore = 12

E.G. #2:

My Whole Number Is - 1489

My Fraction is 9/9

9*1489 = 13401

13401/9 = 1489
