What Are Improper Fractions?

Improper Fractions are when the numerator is bigger than the denominator.You can also change a improper fraction into a mixed number by dividing.An improper fraction is more than 1 whole.

what are mixed numbers?

Mixed Numbers are a whole number with a fraction next to it.You can change a mixed number into a improper fraction by getting MAD.To get MAD you must multiply your denominator times the whole number.Then you add that total to your numerator.


You can compare fractions by cross multiplying,using your comparing symbols.You can also compare fractions easily if the numerators are the same.When your numerators are the same you can think of a candy bar.Cut the candy bar into the number of your denominator and say somebody ate the number of your numerator.
