Improper Fractions to Mixed Numbers: Basic Strategy

Divide the numerator by the denominator to get a mixed number from an improper fraction, and then calculate the remainder and quotient.

The remainder becomes the numerator portion of the resulting mixed fraction, the quotient becomes the whole number, and the denominator portion stays the same.

Example: Let us convert the mixed number, 5 1/7 to an improper fraction.

Solution: We will multiply the number 7 by 5 and the product is 7 × 5 = 35. To this, we will add the numerator 1, which makes it 35 + 1 = 36.

Now, 36 becomes the new numerator, and the denominator 7 remains the same. Therefore, 5 1/7   is changed to an improper fraction and is written as 36/7.
