does anyone kow how to write mixed numbers??
I was wondering if maybe you guys could help me since math isn’t my best subject.
My home work says…..
write as a mxed number :
15/4 7/3 50/8 63/12
If you could please help me with those it would be awesome!
Look at the it and ask yourself:
How many times does 4 go into 15?
3 times with a remainder of 3. (3×4 = 12… 15-12= 3)
Your remainder becomes the top of the new fraction /4
So you can write this as 3 3/4
Here is 15/4 as an example.
Divide 15 by 4 to get 3. 3 is your WHOLE number.
Multiply 4 and 3 to get 12. Subtract 12 from 15 and you get 3. 3 is your NEW NUMERATOR.
4 is your DENOMINATOR since it doesn’t change.
** The only way the denominator would change is if you can simplify your fraction. If you had 2/6, you could make it 1/3.
Let’s do the next…7/3. That is the same as 7 divided by 3…so the answer would be 2.33, in fraction that would be 2 and 1/3 …just picture money and it’ll be easier. (when your fraction is .33 or .66 it’s ALWAYS 1/3 and 2/3)
The third one is 50/8….so that would be 50 divided by 8…the answer wold be 6.25…so in fraction, here again, see it as money…what is .25 ? isn’t it one quarter ? so the answer is 6 and 1/4…try the last one. I hope I didn’t confuse you, hon…Good Luck
A mixed number is a whole number and a fraction. As an example get a calculator or pen and paper and divide 4 into 15…and you’ll get 3 and 3/4 but you should write it as 3 3/4. And just do the same for the rest. (divide the bottom number into the top)
the top (numerator) goes inside the “division house”
the bottom (denominator) goes outside the “division house”
4 goes into 15 … 3 times
then, there is 3 left over. (remainder 3)
So, the 3 is the whole number
The remainder, 3, is the top (numerator) of the fraction part
4, the bottom (denominator) of the fraction part stays the same.
And then you smile 🙂
the top (numerator) goes inside the “division house.”
the bottom (denominator) goes on the outside.
3 goes into 7… 2 times
then, there is 1 left over. (remainder 1)
So, the 2 is the whole number.
The remainder, 1, is the top (numerator) of the fraction part
3, the bottom (denominator) of the fraction part stays the same
Don’t forget to smile 🙂
