How to make an improper fraction into a proper fraction?

Answered by wiki @



Divide the numerator by the denominator and any remaining values go back above the denominator. 

Example: 

17 / 4 is an improper fraction. To turn it into a proper fraction we do 17 divided by 4. 

17 / 4 is 4 with a remainder of 4. So we put the 4 on the outside and the 1 back above the denominator, which is 4. 

It ends up looking like this:  \frac{17}{4} = 4 \frac{1}{4}

Do you know the better answer?
