How to convert mixed numbers to improper and vice versa

Image result for mixed to improper fractions examples

To find out how to convert mixed numbers to improper you have to do a simple trick.  The trick is to multiply the whole number and denominator then add the numerator. If you don’t know what a numerator and denominator is then let me tell you: the numerator is the number on the top of a fraction and the denominator is the bottom of a fraction.

To do the inverse ( improper to mixed numbers) you just have to divide the numerator by the denominator. If there are any remainders then put it as your numerator. e.g. 13/3 – (13 divide 3 =4r1)4 1/3
