Converting Mixed Number To Improper Fraction Procedure
Let's investigate how to convert a Mixed Number To Improper Fraction. A Mixed Number has 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.
So how do we convert a Mixed Number to an Improper Fraction? Follow these simple steps:
- 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.
Multiply the integer number by the fraction's denominator.
Take the product of the multiplication in Step 1, and add the fraction's numerator
The result of Step 2 is the numerator of the improper fraction and the fraction
denominator is used for the improper fraction's denominator.

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
