Best Answer

Given an improper fraction (a fraction greater than 1), we divide the numerator by the denominator. The quotient is the whole number part of the mixed number. The remainder is the numerator of the fraction part. The denominator is the same as the denominator of the original fraction. For example:

Given the fraction 17/5.

17 divided by 5 is 3 with a remainder of 2.

The answer is 3 2/5.
