So how do we convert a Improper Fraction like 48/5 to a Mixed Number? Follow these simple steps:

Computation Comment
48 ÷ 5 = 9.333333333333... Compute the Whole Number part of of mixed number: 9.
Divide Improper Fractions's numerator by its denominator. The whole number is the part we need.

5 × 9 = 45
48 − 45 = 3
Compute the whole number remainer of the division: 3. This will be the numerator of the fractional part of the mixed number.
Multiply the Whole Number part of the division (9) by the denominator of the Improper Fraction (5), and subtract it from Improper Fractions denominator (48).

This is the numerator of the fractional part of the mixed number.
