# Express the following as mixed fractions : (a) 20/3 (b) 11/5 (c) 17/7 (d) 28/5 (e) 19/6 (f) 35/9

**Solution:**

We use the concepts of fractions, improper fractions, and mixed fractions to express the given fractions as mixed fractions.

Here we observe that a given fraction is an improper fraction. Hence it can be easily converted into a mixed fraction.

Let us divide the given fraction. On dividing, we will get the quotient and remainder.

Now, we write the given fraction in the mixed form a b/c where a is the quotient, b is the remainder and c is the divisor. Let us apply this concept to solve all the six cases of the given problem.

**(a)**

**(b)**

**(c)**

**(d)**

**(e)**

**(f)**

Hence we got the fraction in mixed form for all the six cases given.
