# Write each mixed number as a fraction a) 2 3/4 b)1 1/2 c) 5 1/3

All fractions have two components: a numerator and a denominator. A fraction that combines a whole number and a proper fraction is known as a mixed fraction.

## Answer: a) 2 3/4 as a fraction can be written as 11/4 b) 1 1/2 as a fraction can be written as 3/2 c) 5 1/3 can be written as 16/3.

Let us proceed step by step.

**Explanation:**

To express a) 2 3/4 as in a fraction, we multiply the whole number by the denominator, that is, 2 × 4 = 8

Now, we add the result with the numerator, that is, 8 + 3 = 11

Hence, 2 3/4 = 11/4

Similarly, using the same above method we can express b) 1 1/2 as 3/2 c) 5 1/3 as 16/3.
