Write the fraction as a mixed number.
A mixed fraction is a mixture of a whole and a proper fraction.
Answer: A fraction can be written as a mixed number by dividing the numerator with the denominator, finding the remainder, and arranging the numbers in the following way, quotient followed by a fraction of remainder/divisor.
Let us look at an example to understand it better.
Let us convert 23/4 into a mixed number.
- Divide the numerator with the denominator: 23/4 = 5
- Find the remainder: 23 - 20 = 3
- Quotient followed by a fraction of remainder/divisor: 5 ¾
So, 23/4 as a mixed number would be 5 ¾
