Converting Mixed Number To Improper Fraction Calculator


Let's investigate how to convert a Mixed Number To Improper Fraction. Mixed Numbers have two parts: an Integer number and a Fraction of a number. For example: 31/4. Below are the rules that define a correct mixed number.
  • As stated, a mixed number must have an integer portion and a fraction portion.
  • The integer portion of a mixed number can not be zero.
  • The numerator of the fraction portion of the mixed number can not be zero.
  • The denominator of the fraction portion of the mixed number can not be zero. Division by zero is undefined!
  • The denominator of a fraction must be greater than numerator. In other word, it must be a Proper Fraction.

So how do we convert a Mixed Number to an Improper Fraction? Follow these simple steps:
  • Step 1:


    Multiply the integer number by the fraction's denominator.
  • Step 2:


    Take the product of the multiplication in Step 1, and add the fraction's numerator to it.
  • Step 3:


    The result of Step 2 is the numerator of the improper fraction and the fraction denominator is used for the improper fraction's denominator.

Please Read! These are instructions to input mixed number into the calculator: if you want to enter a whole number and a fraction (a mixed number) there must be a space between the integer and the fraction - for example type "13 1/2".
