Improper Fractions and Mixed Numbers by Shmoop

Improper Fractions and Mixed Numbers by Shmoop


Improper Fractions and Mixed Numbers,
a la Shmoop. Numbers come in all shapes and sizes. Some are big… …and some are little… Some are whole… …and others are a bit fractured. As far as fractions go, it’s a mixed bag. Some fractions are proper… …some are improper… …and then there are those that are
just a little mixed up. Proper fractions have a numerator that’s smaller
than the denominator. Which means they’re always less than 1. Proper fractions also donate to charities
and volunteer in soup kitchens. They know they’re not greater than anyone
else around them. Improper fractions, on the other hand, are
a little full of themselves. They’ve got big heads… well,
big numerators, anyway. In improper fractions, the numerator is bigger
than the denominator… …which means they’re greater than 1. Since fractions aren’t supposed to be greater
than 1, we call these guys improper. They’re a bit on the rude side. But if they get on our nerves… … we can change them into mixed numbers. Mixed numbers are combinations of
whole numbers and fractions… … so they may be a bit confused at times. Maybe they’re going through an identity crisis
or something, we don’t really know. We can change improper fractions
into mixed numbers by dividing the numerator by the denominator. That’s what fractions are, right? Division. We’ll end up with a number and a remainder. The number is the whole number in front, and the remainder goes in the
numerator of the fraction that follows it. If we’re sick of being mixed up by mixed numbers… … we can change them back
into improper fractions, too. Since we divided to change them, let’s
multiply to change them back. First, we multiply the denominator
by the whole number. Once we find that product, we add it to the
numerator of our mixed number’s fraction. Then, we put that number all over
the original denominator… …to get our improper fraction. So in the end, mixed numbers
and improper fractions can express the same number 2 different ways. It’s up to you to decide which is better:
improper… or mixed.

    Improper fractions are silly strong because the numerator is bigger than the denominator to mixed numberals with a whole number that says who am I and a fraction
