## Improper fractions to mixed numbers

Improper fractions and mixed numbers are both used to represent amounts larger than 1.
An improper fraction is one with its numerator larger than its denominator. A mixed number contains a whole number (integer) part, and a fractional part. It is useful to be able to convert between mixed numbers and improper fractions in order to make calculations with fractions easier to do. To change an improper fraction to a mixed number: - Divide the numerator by the denominator.
- Write the whole number part down.
- Write the remainder as the numerator of the fraction.
- The denominator of the fraction is whatever you were dividing by.
