# How to turn an improper fraction into a proper fraction?

Proper fractions are the ones that have a numerator smaller than the denominator. Improper fractions are the ones that have a numerator greater than the denominator.

## Answer: We cannot convert an improper fraction into a proper fraction

Let's understand proper and improper fractions.

**Explanation:**

A proper fraction represents parts that are less than 1, while an improper fraction represents more than 1 quantity.

Example: 2/5 (value lesser than 1) is a proper fraction and 9/4 (value greater than 1) is an improper fraction.

### Hence, it is not possible to turn an improper fraction into a proper fraction.
