Improper Fractions to Mixed Numbers Converter

Understanding fractions is a fundamental aspect of mathematics. Improper fractions and mixed numbers are two common ways of representing parts of a whole. An improper fraction is one where the numerator is equal to or greater than the denominator, while a mixed number combines a whole number and a proper fraction.

What is an improper fraction?

An improper fraction is a fraction in which the numerator is equal to or greater than the denominator. For example, 7/4 is an improper fraction.

What is a mixed number?

A mixed number consists of a whole number and a proper fraction. For instance, 134 is a mixed number.

Converter Formula:

To convert an improper fraction to a mixed number:
  • Divide the numerator by the denominator.
  • The quotient becomes the whole number part of the mixed number.
  • The remainder becomes the numerator of the proper fraction, with the same denominator.
