Numbers can be written in different forms. A mixed number is the sum of a whole number and a proper fraction. A proper fraction is a fraction in which the numerator is smaller than the denominator. Any whole number can itself be turned into a fraction and, consequently, a mixed number can the converted into a single fraction. This fraction will be an improper fraction, or a fraction where the numerator is larger than the denominator. If you had a choice between eating 1 1/3 of a candy bar or 4/3 of a candy bar, which would you choose? Did you know that a mixed number (like 1 1/3) and an improper fraction (like 4/3) can represent the exact same amount? These two numbers are equal, so no matter which one you chose, you would have the same amount of candy bar! This lesson will show you why this is true and how to convert mixed numbers to improper fractions.

It's said that a picture is worth a thousand words, so let's look at some images that will help us understand fractional notation. The following image shows a bar broken into 5 equal pieces. Therefore, 5 pieces make up a whole bar in this example, so the denominator is 5. Of the 5 pieces, 2 are shaded in. Because we are referring to 2 of the 5 pieces, the numerator in this example is 2. This image represents the fraction 2/5. (Source: study.com)


Any number that is represented in decimal notation is called as decimal number. (i.e.,) 0.11 is a decimal number. It is equivalent to 11 / 100. 11 is numerator and 100 is denominator. 11 / 100 is called as vulgar or simple fractions. Thus any fractional number can be represented in decimal notation. Use this calculator to convert a decimal number to its equivalent vulgar fraction.
