Can 11 and 1 eighth be written as a proper fraction?

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.
