Conversion of fractions is discussed here in order to convert a mixed fraction into an improper fraction and also to convert an improper fraction as a mixed fraction.

**Method of reduction of different fractions into like fractions:****Step I: **Find the L.C.M of all the denominators. **Step II: **Divide the L.C.M by the denominator of the first fraction and get the quotient. **Step III: **Multiply both numerator and denominator of the first fraction by the quotient. **Step IV: **Repeat step 2 and 3 for all the given fractions.

In order to convert a mixed fraction into an improper fraction, we may use the following formula;

**Improper fraction = {(Whole number x Denominator) + Numerator} Denominator **

**For example; **

(i) 3

(ii) 9

*In order to convert an improper fraction as a mixed fraction, we first divide the numerator by denominator and obtain the quotient and remainder and then we write the mixed fraction as *

**Quotient = Remainder Denominator **

(i) ¹⁷/₄ = 4¹/₄ [Since, Quotient = 4, Remainder = 1]

(ii) ⁴⁷/₁₅ = 3²/₁₅ [Since, Quotient = 3, Remainder = 2]

If the numerator and denominator of a fraction are both multiplied by the same non-zero number, then its value does not change.

=

If the numerator and denominator of a fraction are both divided by their common factor, then its value does not change.

i.e.,
