  7. 7. <ul><li>We take the remaining 3 and make it into a fraction. The remaining 3 will always go over the original denominator. </li></ul><ul><li>The number of times the denominator goes into the numerator always goes in front of the remaining fraction such as: </li></ul><ul><li>1 3 </li></ul><ul><li>5 </li></ul>
  8. 8. Practice <ul><ul><li>Are these improper fractions? If so change it into a mixed fractions. </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li>1. 13 2. 9 </li></ul></ul><ul><ul><li> 6 2 </li></ul></ul>
