aent no such thang as "improper frakshun"

all frakshuns R frakshuns or not

3 1/5=3.2

& thats NOT

no such thing as an 'improper frakshun', but there is such thing called 'improper fraction'.
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

You do 5x3 and get 15. Then you would add 1 because that is the numerator. Ane your improper fraction should be 16/5.

1=5/5

5/5x3=15/5

15/5+1/5=16/5
