4 7 8 As an Improper Fraction

## 4 7 8 As an Improper Fraction # 4 7 8 As an Improper Fraction

A rectangle is a figure with four sides and four corners, which in turn each have four holes. We’re going to use a ruler to find the unit length of a rectangle, which is the y-intercept x-ordinate. Then we’ll determine the x-, y-, and z-coordinates using Pythagoras’s theorem.

### Reaction

A fraction describes a part of a whole. The number on the bottom of the fraction is called the denominator, and it denotes how many equal parts the whole is divided into. The number on the top of the fraction is called the numerator, and it denotes how many of the parts we are taking. For example, the fraction 3/4 denotes "3 of 4 equal parts." 3 is the numerator, and 4 is the denominator.

Improper fractions can also be represented as a mixed number. To convert an improper fraction into a mixed number, divide the numerator by the denominator. The resultant becomes the whole number, and the remainder becomes the numerator of the new fraction. The denominator of the new fraction is the same as the original denominator. If there is no remainder, then there is no fraction--the result is simply a whole number. (Source: www.sparknotes.com)

### Mixed

This is called a mixed fraction. Thus, an improper fraction can be expressed as a mixed fraction, where quotient represents the whole number, remainder becomes the numerator and divisor is the denominator. A fraction, where the numerator is less than the denominator is called the proper fraction for example, $$\frac{2}{3}$$, $$\frac{5}{7}$$, $$\frac{3}{5}$$ are proper fractions. A fraction with numerator 1 is called a unit fraction.

Fractions come in different forms, such as proper and improper fractions, and mixed numbers as well. Learn about mixed numbers and improper fractions and explore the procedure for changing mixed numbers into improper fractions by solving relevant examples provided in this lesson.
