## Mixed Number to Improper Fraction Calculator

Mixed Number to Improper Fraction calculator is used to convert all types of mixed numbers into improper fractions.

## What is an improper fraction?

It is the type of fraction in which the value of the numerator is greater than the denominator. E.g. we have a value of **9/2** where **9 **is known as the numerator and **2 **is the denominator.

This is an improper fraction because **9 **is greater than **2**.

## What is a mixed number?

A mixed number is also known as a mixed fraction. A mixed fraction is a fraction that contains an integer part and a fractional part. **12 4/6** where **12 **is known as the integer part and **4/6** is the fractional part. Remember that the fractional part of the mixed fraction should be a proper fraction.

A fraction in which the value of the numerator is less than the of the denominator **proper fraction**.

## Method of conversion

To convert a mixed fraction into an improper form, follow the steps below

**mixed fraction = a * b/c**

- Multiply
**a**and**c**by each other. - After the multiplication of
`a by c`

, add**b**to the answer and make it a numerator. - The denominator always remains the same.
- The simplest way to write it is: (a*c+b)/c

For example

**Example**

What is the improper fraction of the mixed fraction **12 * 2/5**?

**Solution:**

**Step 1: **Multiply the denominator by the whole number and add the numerator of the proper fraction to it.

(a * c) + b = 12*5 + 2

= 60 + 2

**= 62**

**Step 2:** Now write the above result over "**c**".

`[(a * c) + b] / c = 62/5`

Hence, **62/5** is the improper fraction of the given mixed number.
