A fraction in which the numerator is equal to or greater than the denominator is called an improper fraction

A fraction which is a combination of a whole number and a proper fraction is known as a mixed fraction

Answer: The product of 4 2⁄3 and 11 1⁄4 is 105/2 or 52 1⁄2 

Let's convert the mixed fractions to improper fractions to evaluate the product

Explanation:

By converting the mixed fraction to improper fraction we get,

4 2⁄3 = 14/3

11 1⁄4 = 45/4

Thus, 4 2⁄3 ×11 1⁄4 = 14/3 × 45/4

                            = 7 × 15/2             (On simplifying and cancelling out terms)

                            = 105/2 

                             = 52 1⁄2                  (Converting back improper fraction to mixed fraction)

Hence, the product of 4 2⁄3 and 11 1⁄4 is 105/2 or 52 1⁄2
