**Writing a mixed number as an improper fraction :**

Students who learn math at primary level must be aware of writing an a mixed as an improper fraction.

The picture given below illustrates how to write a mixed number as an improper fraction.

**Example 1 :**

Write the following mixed number as improper fraction.

**Solution : **

We have to do the following steps to write the given mixed number as improper fraction.

**Step 1 : **

Multiply the denominator 3 by the whole number 91.

Thus, we get 273

**Step 2 : **

Add this 273 to the numerator 2.

Thus, we get 275.

**Step 3 : **

Now, form a fraction with this 275 as numerator and 3 (denominator in the given mixed number) as denominator.

Therefore, the required improper fraction is 275/3.

**Example 2 :**

Write the following mixed number as improper fraction.

**Solution : **

We have to do the following steps to write the given mixed number as improper fraction.

**Step 1 : **

Multiply the denominator 7 by the whole number 22.

Thus, we get 154

**Step 2 : **

Add this 154 to the numerator 1.

Thus, we get 155.

**Step 3 : **

Now, form a fraction with this 155 as numerator and 7 (denominator in the given mixed number) as denominator.

Therefore, the required improper fraction is 155/7.

**Example 3 :**

Write the following mixed number as improper fraction.

**Solution : **

We have to do the following steps to write the given mixed number as improper fraction.

**Step 1 : **

Multiply the denominator 13 by the whole number 60.

Thus, we get 780

**Step 2 : **

Add this 780 to the numerator 2.

Thus, we get 782.

**Step 3 : **

Now, form a fraction with this 782 as numerator and 13 (denominator in the given mixed number) as denominator.

Therefore, the required improper fraction is 782/13.

**Example 4 :**

Write the following mixed number as improper fraction.

**Solution : **

We have to do the following steps to write the given mixed number as improper fraction.

**Step 1 : **

Multiply the denominator 8 by the whole number 9.

Thus, we get 72

**Step 2 : **

Add this 72 to the numerator 3.

Thus, we get 75.

**Step 3 : **

Now, form a fraction with this 75 as numerator and 8 (denominator in the given mixed number) as denominator.

Therefore, the required improper fraction is 75/8.

**Example 5 :**

Write the following mixed number as improper fraction.

**Solution : **

We have to do the following steps to write the given mixed number as improper fraction.

**Step 1 : **

Multiply the denominator 15 by the whole number 11.

Thus, we get 165

**Step 2 : **

Add this 165 to the numerator 13.

Thus, we get 178.

**Step 3 : **

Now, form a fraction with this 178 as numerator and 15 (denominator in the given mixed number) as denominator.

Therefore, the required improper fraction is 178/15.
