CONVERSION FROM MIX FRACTION TO IMPROPER FRACTION -

Converting a mixed fraction to an improper fraction involves combining the whole number part with the fractional part. Here are the steps to convert a mixed fraction (a mixed number) to an improper fraction:

Step 1:- Write down the whole number as the whole part of the improper fraction.

Step 2:- Multiply the denominator of the fractional part by the whole number and add the numerator to get the new numerator of the improper fraction.

Step 3:- Keep the same denominator for the improper fraction.

Let's go through an example:

1

Example.1) Convert 3 ------ to an improper fraction.

2

Ans.)

Step 1:- Write down the whole number (3) as the whole part of the improper fraction.

Step 2:- Multiply the denominator of the fractional part (2) by the whole number (3) and add the numerator (1) to get the new numerator: 2 * 3 + 1 = 7.

Step 3:- Keep the same denominator (2) for the improper fraction.

1

The improper fraction is 7/2. So, 3 ----- is equivalent to 7/2.  (Ans.)

2

Another way of understanding -

To convert a mixed fraction to an improper fraction, need to follow these steps:

1. Multiply the whole number part by the denominator of the fraction.
2. Add the result to the numerator.
3. Keep the same denominator.

Let's take an example:

1

Example.2) Convert the mixed fraction 3 ------ to an improper fraction.

2

Step 1:- Multiply the whole number part (3) by the denominator (4): 3 * 4 = 12

Step 2:- Add the result (12) to the numerator (1): 12 + 1 = 13

Step 3:- Keep the same denominator (4):

1

So, the improper fraction equivalent to 3 ----- is 13/4.      (Ans.)
