Mixed Numbers To Fractions Worksheets

How to Convert Mixed Numbers to Fractions - In most of the cases, if two numbers cannot be divided without leaving a remainder, they are written as fractions. There are two types of fractions: proper and improper. In a proper fraction, the numerator is always smaller than the denominator, while in an improper fraction, the case is the opposite. Fractional numbers can also be determined in mixed numbers. But what is a mixed number? A mixed number is a way of representing a fraction in a more factorized form. But there is one thing attached to the concept of mixed numbers. Only an improper fraction can be expressed in a mixed number form. Why? Let’s find out. The method of converting fractions into mixed numbers is that we see how many denominators can lie in the numerator, which can happen if the denominator is smaller. The number of denominators that can lie in the numerator is written on the left side of the fraction, and the leftover numerator is written in place if the numerator and the denominator is written as it is. This can only be in the case of improper fractions since, in a proper fraction, denominators are bigger and cannot lie in a numerator. To convert a mixed number into a fraction, you can simply multiply the denominator with the whole number written on the left side and add the answer to the numerator.
