Favorite Answer

(b) add the answer to (a) to the numerator

(c) the answer to (b) is your improper numerator

1) 2 1/3 => 3*2 = 6

=> 6+1 = 7

= 7/3

2) 5 1/4 => 4*5 = 20

=> 20+1 = 21

=> 21/4

3) 4 1/2 => 2*4 = 8

=> 8+1 = 9

=> 9/2

4) 6 7/8 => 8*6 = 48

=> 48+7 = 55

=> 55/8

2) 21/4

3) 9/2

4) 55/8

Multiply the whole number (the one that is ot a fraction) by the lower number of the fraction and then add the top number of the fraction. Then write the answer as the upper number of the fraction and keep the same lower number of the original fraction.

multiply the denominator which is three by 2 the whole number that gives you the answer 6 then add the numerator which is one final answer should be 7/3

same with second multiply 4 by 5 is 20 then add 1 the numerator answer is 21/4 and so forth.

Multiply 2 times 3. You get 6.

Then add 1. So 6 plus 1 is 7.

7 is your NEW NUMERATOR.

3 is still the denominator.

GOOD LUCK!
