An improper fraction is one where the numerator is bigger than the denominator. For example 3/2 or 10/3. So if you were to divide a big number by a small number, would your answer be less than 1?

Suppose you get zero as the remainder when you divide the numerator of an improper fraction by the denominator what does that tell you?

If the remainder is 0 when you divide the numerator by the denominator, then the improper fraction it is not in the simplest form, and you cannot convert it to a mixed number. For example, 10/2 is an improper fraction, and its reduced form is 5/1. 57/10 is an improper fraction in the simplest form, and we can convert it to a mixed number such as 5 7/10. it tells you that the improper fraction reduces to a whole number: 9/3 10/2 is equal to 3 and 5 respectively

It is a top-heavy, or improper fraction but only if the denominator is positive.It is not defined if the denominator is 0 and the numerator is any positive integer.It need not be an improper fraction if the denominator is negative and the numerator is positive - and therefore greater - but of a smaller magnitude.For example, consider 2/(-3): the numerator = 2 is bigger than denominator = -3, but the fraction is not improper.

Indicates the sum of a whole number and a fraction?

A fraction is a part of the whole. It is a form of number that indicates the quotient or division of two whole numbers, except 0.The top number of a fraction is called the numerator and the bottom number is the denominator.
