Answer by: ada

s
To convert $\frac52$ into a mixed number, divide the numerator by the denominator.

$5\div2=2\text{ remainder }1$

The remainder still 'needs to be divided' so this is expressed as $\frac12$ and the whole number sits out front to give $2\frac12$

__Solutions__

**Question 1**

a) As the numerator is less than the denominator this fraction is proper

b) As the numerator is more than the denominator this fraction is improper

c) As this term contains both a whole number and a fraction this is a mixed number

d) As the numerator is less than the denominator this fraction is proper

e) As the numerator is more than the denominator this fraction is improper

f) As this term contains both a whole number and a fraction this is a mixed number

g) As this term contains both a whole number and a fraction this is a mixed number

h) As the numerator is less than the denominator this fraction is proper

i) As the numerator is more than the denominator this fraction is improper

j) As this term contains both a whole number and a fraction this is a mixed number

k) As the numerator is more than the denominator this fraction is improper

**Question 2**

a) To convert $\frac52$ into a mixed number, divide the numerator by the denominator.

$5\div2=2\text{ remainder }1$

The remainder still 'needs to be divided' so this is expressed as $\frac12$ and the whole number sits out front to give $2\frac12$

b) To convert $\frac72$ into a mixed number, divide the numerator by the denominator.

$7\div2=3\text{ remainder }1$

The remainder still 'needs to be divided' so this is expressed as $\frac12$ and the whole number sits out front to give $3\frac12$

c) To convert $\frac{11}{2}$ into a mixed number, divide the numerator by the denominator.

$11\div2=5\text{ remainder }1$

The remainder still 'needs to be divided' so this is expressed as $\frac12$ and the whole number sits out front to give $5\frac12$

d) To convert $\frac{4}{3}$ into a mixed number, divide the numerator by the denominator.

$4\div3=1\text{ remainder }1$

The remainder still 'needs to be divided' so this is expressed as $\frac13$ and the whole number sits out front to give $1\frac13$

g)

h)

i) To convert $\frac{13}{5}$ into a mixed number, divide the numerator by the denominator.

$13\div5=2\text{ remainder }3$

r) To convert $\frac{89}{7}$ into a mixed number, divide the numerator by the denominator.

$89\div7=12\text{ remainder }5$

The remainder still 'needs to be divided' so this is expressed as $\frac57$ and the whole number sits out front to give $12\frac57$

**Question 3**

a) To convert $2\frac34$ into an improper fraction, multiply the whole number by the denominator and add the numerator. Write the result above the original denominator.

$\begin{align}2\times4&=8\\8+3&=11\\\text{therefore }&\frac{11}{4}\end{align}$

b) To convert $3\frac25$ into an improper fraction, multiply the whole number by the denominator and add the numerator. Write the result above the original denominator.

$\begin{align}3\times5&=15\\15+2&=17\\\text{therefore }&\frac{17}{5}\end{align}$

c)

d) To convert $1\frac12$ into an improper fraction, multiply the whole number by the denominator and add the numerator. Write the result above the original denominator.

$\begin{align}1\times2&=2\\2+1&=3\\\text{therefore }&\frac{3}{2}\end{align}$
