# How to convert an improper fraction to a mixed number?

A mixed number is a combination of a whole number and a proper fraction.

## Answer: To convert an improper fraction to a mixed fraction, divide the numerator by the denominator, write the quotient as the whole number and the remainder as the new numerator on top of the same denominator.

Let us see an example to understand this better.

**Explanation:**

Convert 23/4 into a mixed fraction.

- First, divide the numerator by the denominator. So, if we divide 23 by 4, we get 5 as the quotient with a remainder of 3.
- Write 5 as the whole number and then write the remainder (3) as the new numerator above the same denominator (4).
- So, 23/4 converted into a mixed fraction will be 5¾
