Any number written in numerator by denominator (I / P) form is said to be fractional number. For example: 123 / 105, 210 / 350, 601 / 2000 and so on. There are three types of fraction which are:
Proper fraction
Improper fraction
Mixed fraction. Here we will see the changing process of fraction to mixed number.
The upper part of a fraction value is numerator and the bottom part of a fraction is denominator. Now we will understand the steps for converting fractions to mixed number.
Numbers written in numerator by denominator (I / P) form are known as fractional numbers. For example: 123 / 105, 210 / 350, 601 / 2000 and so on. There are three types of fractions which are:
Proper fraction
Improper fraction
Mixed fraction.
Here we will see process of converting fraction to mixed number.
Upper part of a fraction value is numerator and lower part of fraction is denominator. Now we will understand steps for converting fractions to mixed number.
Before learning conversion it is necessary to learn about mixed numbers.
A whole number combined with fraction is called as mixed fraction.
For example: 18 12/300?
Step 1: To change a number to mixed form first we take a fraction number.
Step 2: We will check whether given fraction is proper or improper.
Step 3: If given fraction is a proper then convert it into improper fraction.
Step 4: Now divide numerator by denominator.
Step 5: After dividing number we write remainder value as numerator and division value in denominator and quotient value is attached to fraction.
Suppose we have 25 / 9, change this fraction into mixed number.
Here given fraction is improper fraction because numerator value is always larger than denominator value. So it is an improper fraction.
Step 1: Here our fraction is 25 / 9.
Given fraction is improper so divide numerator by denominator.
On dividing we get:
After dividing we have remainder value 7, quotient value 2 and division value is 9.
So write these values in form of mixed number. So mixed number is 2 7 / 9. This is how we convert fractions to mixed number.
