Convert mixed fractions to improper fractions

Formula how to convert mixed fraction to improper fraction:

ab c =a x c + b c (a) = the whole number

Improper fraction denominator = denominator (c), denominator remains the sameExample:

21 3 ÷33 4 21 3 =2 x 3 + 1 3 =7 3 33 4 =3 x 4 + 3 4 =15 4 Now we can divide fractions

7 3 ÷15 4 - 2
