Hello, viewers! Today I will be doing a math tutorial on how to convert mixed fractions into improper fractions. First, I will be explaining to you what a mixed fraction and an improper fraction is. A mixed fraction is basically a whole number and a fraction together. For example, a whole pizza, and then half a pizza would be an illustration of a mixed fraction. An improper fraction is basically another way of writing an improper fraction. An improper fraction is written like this: 7/5.

An example of a mixed fraction and how it is written.

Now for the converting. Converting a mixed fraction to an improper fraction is really simple. Look at the mixed fraction in the picture above. There is a whole number, a numerator, and a denominator. **To convert the fraction, you have to multiply the denominator by the whole number.** If you had the fraction 1 1/2, your answer would be 2. Now for the next step. **For the next step, you take the answer for the previous multiplication problem, and then you add it by the numerator.** In this case, it would be 2+1, which equals 3. 3 would be the numerator for your improper fraction. Now for the denominator. **For the denominator, you keep the denominator from the fraction part of the mixed fraction**. So there you have your fraction, 3/2!
