SO U HAVE 3 1/2, FIRST TAKE THE DENOMINATOR (2) MULTIPLY IT BY THE WHOLE NUMBER (3) ULL GET 6 THEN ADD THE NUMBERATOR (1) AND ULL HAVE 7. WRITE THE 7 AS A NUMBERATOR AND PLACE THE ORIGIONAL DENOMINATOR (2) BACK IN ITS PLACE SO ULL HAVE 7/2 IS THE IMPROPER FRACTION. TO CHE UR WORK JUST DIVIDE THE NUMBERATOR BY THE DENOMINATOR: 7/2----2 GOES INTO 7, 3 TIMES WITH 1 LEFT OVER, THAT LOOKS LIKE 3 1/2
