To convert an improper fraction to a mixed fraction, follow these steps:

1. Divide the numerator by the denominator.
2. Write down the whole number answer.
3. Then write down any remainder above the denominator.

## When the numerator is the denominator the fraction is less than one whole?

For parts of numbers less than one, the numerator is smaller than the denominator. This is called a proper fraction. When the number of parts is larger than a whole, a fraction can be written in two ways. One way is as a “top-heavy” fraction, when the numerator is bigger than the denominator.

## What type of fraction whose numerator is 1?

3. Unit Fractions: The fractions having one (1) as their numerator are called unit fractions. 1/3, 1/5, 1/7, 1/9, …………, etc., are unit fractions.

## What happens if a numerator is 0?

If the numerator is 0, then the entire fraction becomes zero, no matter what the denominator is! For example, 0⁄100 is 0; 0⁄2 is 0, and so on. If the numerator is the same as the denominator, the value of the fraction becomes 1. For example, if the fraction is 45⁄45 , then its value will be 1.

## What happens if there is a 0 in the denominator?

The denominator of any fraction cannot have the value zero. If the denominator of a fraction is zero, the expression is not a legal fraction because it’s overall value is undefined. are not legal fractions. Their values are all undefined, and hence they have no meaning.

## How do you change a negative fraction?

Realize that negative signs represent multiplying the number by −1. Any fraction can be multiplied by aa without changing the value, since it equals one. So, multiply your fraction by −1−1 to clear negative signs (or to move them between the top and bottom).

## How do you change a negative fraction to a positive fraction?

If a fraction has a negative number as its denominator, it’s easy to convert it into a positive.

1. Write Your Fraction.
2. Multiply the Numerator and Denominator.
3. Reduce Fraction to Its Simplest Form.

## Is fraction can be negative?

We know that A fraction represents a part of a whole or, more generally, any number of equal parts. So fraction can not be negative.
