## Mixed numbers to improper fractions

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 a mixed number to an improper fraction: - Multiply the denominator by the whole number.
- Add on the numerator of the fraction.
- This number is the numerator of the improper fraction. Write this down.
- The denominator remains the same.
