Mixed number

- Make sure you're working with two fractions.
- Multiply numerator x numerator, then multiply denominator x denominator.

- Make sure you're working with two fractions
- Flip the second fraction upside down.
- Change the division sign into a multiplication sign.
- Multiply top x top and bottom x bottom.

- Convert mixed numbers into improper fractions.
- Take the whole (non-fraction) number and multiply it by the denominator.
- Add that answer to the numerator.
- Put that amount over the original denominator and you will have an improper fraction.

- Find the lowest common denominator (bottom number). For both adding and subtracting fractions, you'll start with the same process.
- Multiply fractions to match the lowest common denominator.
- Add or subtract the two numerators (top number) but NOT the denominators.

Hi,

To do this on any calculator, enter the numerator and denominator of your mixed fraction, with a divide in between. I get 1.4. Next, take the decimal into a fraction and reduce it to lowest terms. In this case, 0.4 converts to 4/10 which reduces to 2/5. Putting the two pieces together, we get 1 and 2/5.

Good luck.

Paul

To convert a fraction to lowest terms, we must divide the numerator (the top number) and the denominator (the bottom number) by a common number until we can't reduce it any more. A method for doing this is to factor the numerator and denominator by their common factors.

So let's factor 711 and 22.

1 x 711

9 x 79

3 x 3 x 79

I don't think I can factor 79. We should check the numbers from 2 up to the square root of 79, or approximately 9.

Factoring 22,

1 x 22

2 x 11

Unfortunately, none of the factors of 711 are common with the factors of 22, so it is already in its lowest terms, and cannot be reduced.

Good luck,

Paul

The fraction 711/22 is an improper fraction (the numerator is greater than the denominator).

While there is nothing incorrect about this, an improper fraction is typically simplified further into a mixed number.

The whole number part of the mixed number is found by dividing the 711 by the 22. In this case we get 32.

The fractional part of the mixed number is found by using the remainder of the division, which in this case is 7 (711 divided by 22 is 32 remainder 7).

The final answer is: 32 7/22

Convert both to improper fractions, divide, then simplify.

3 3/4 is 15/4, 1 1/8 is 9/8. Dividing 15/4 by 9/8 is 120/36. Reducing to lowest terms gives 10/3, which is 3 and 1/3.

(4 1/3) / (1 2/3) = (make the two numbers proper fractions)

(13 / 3) / (5 / 3) = (the "/ 3" on the left and right cancel out each others)

13 / 5 = (go to lowest term)

2 3/5

(13 / 3) / (5 / 3) = (the "/ 3" on the left and right cancel out each others)

13 / 5 = (go to lowest term)

2 3/5
