This 11-plus Maths quiz introduces the ideas of an 'improper fraction' and a 'mixed fraction'. In this quiz we are going to do a few simple calculations with fractions. An improper fraction is a fraction in which the numerator is greater than or equal to the denominator, e.g. 5⁄3 and 9⁄9. A mixed fraction (also called a mixed number) is a number that has a whole number part and a fractional part, which is not written as a decimal, written as a single unit, e.g. 23⁄5. Here are a couple of tips.
TIP 1: Don't forget: the numerator is the number at the top and the denominator is the number at the bottom of a fraction.
TIP 2: To convert a mixed fraction to an improper fraction, follow these steps:
- Multiply the whole number part by the denominator.
- Add this result to the numerator.
- Write the fraction with step 2 in the numerator and keep the original denominator.
