Improper Fraction to Mixed Number

Improper Fraction to Mixed Number

$$${a \over b} = quotient + {remainder \over divisor}$$$

To convert an Improper Fraction to a Mixed Number:

- • Divide the numerator by the denominator (with long division)
- • The result (quotient) of the division becomes the who part of the mixed number
- • The fractional part of the mixed number is the remainder over the original denominator
