### Mixed Number and Fraction Greater Than 1

A fraction that is greater than 1 is a fraction whose numerator is larger than its denominator, this type of fractions can be converted into mixed numbers.

It is important that we remember similar topics:

### How do you convert a mixed number to a fraction?

Multiply the whole number by the denominator.
To the obtained product, add the numerator. The final result will be the new numerator.
Nothing is changed in the denominator.

### How do you convert an integer to a fraction?

The whole number is written in the numerator and the 1 in the denominator.

### Addition and Subtraction of Mixed Numbers

To add and subtract mixed numbers, we will act as follows:

#### First step

We will convert mixed numbers into fractions - fractions with numerator and denominator that do not have whole numbers.

#### Second step

We will find a common denominator (usually by multiplying the denominators).

#### Third step

We will add or subtract only the numerators. The denominator will be written only once in the final result.

## Multiplication and Division of Mixed Numbers

### In multiplications

#### First step

We will convert mixed numbers to fractions and rewrite the exercise.

#### Second step

We will multiply the numerators and the denominators separately.
The product of the numerators will be written in the new numerator.
The product of the denominators will be written in the new denominator.
The commutative property works - We can change the order of the fractions within the exercise without altering the result.

### In divisions

#### First step

We will convert mixed numbers to fractions and rewrite the exercise.

#### Second step

We will convert the division into multiplication and swap between the numerator and the denominator in the second fraction.

#### Third step

We will solve by multiplying numerator by numerator and denominator by denominator.

### Division of an Integer by a Fraction and by a Mixed Number

#### First step

• In case there is any mixed number - we will convert it into a fraction
•     In case there is any whole number - we will convert it into a fraction

#### Second step

We will convert the division into multiplication and swap between the numerator and the denominator in the second fraction.

#### Third step

We will solve by multiplying numerator by numerator and denominator by denominator.
