# How to write a improper fraction as a mixed number

So let me start on another whole. I just kind of drew it for you. For example, 1. Well, you have 3 left over, and that comes from right over there. That is the remainder when you divide 4 into 7. This is a whole.

How to convert a fraction to mixed numbers The fraction is first reduced to its lowest terms see simplify fractions for more information. Why does that actually makes sense?

### 9/4 as a mixed number

So let's draw fourths. The denominator is the same as the denominator of the original fraction. So let me start on another whole. Why does that actually makes sense? What is an improper fraction A fraction is improper when its numerator is greater than its denominator. Improper Fractions to Mixed Numbers Conversion Numerator: Denominator: Converting improper fractions to mixed numbers Here, you can convert an improper fraction into mixed numbers. So if we wanted to write this in plain-- well, let me just do the problem, and then we'll think about what it means in a second. So the number of wholes, or you can imagine, the number of whole pies. When a fraction is 'improper' it can be expressed as a whole number plus a proper fraction. So let's do a little square as a fourth. Now I have 6 one-fourths, and now I have 7 one-fourths. Now I have 3 one-fourths. So first I'm just going to show you a fairly straightforward way of doing it and then we're going to think a little bit about what it actually means. If we're dealing with fourths, 4 goes into 7 a total of one time.

When a fraction is 'improper' it can be expressed as a whole number plus a proper fraction. A proper fraction is a fraction that has a numerator smaller than its denominator, a fraction that has a value less than 1.

Now, it might seem a little bit like voodoo what I just did. So now I have 5.

I have 4 one-fourths. And then what is our remainder? Improper Fractions to Mixed Numbers Conversion Numerator: Denominator: Converting improper fractions to mixed numbers Here, you can convert an improper fraction into mixed numbers.
