• How do u turn 100/16 to an improper fraction
• Hi there, since an Improper Fraction is when a numerator (top number: in this case 100) is greater/larger than the denominator (bottom number: n this case 16), it is already an Improper Fraction: 100/16.
• I don’t understand how to get the whole number, can you help me out?
• I know what you mean
• i like khan acadamy so much
• Khan academy is so fun and easy 10/10😍

• Can you do, 3 2/8 + 5 3/8

26 + 43= 89
Can we do like this
• If you changed the mixed fraction to improper, then removed the denominator, yes. But then you have to convert the 89/8 back to a mixed fraction.
