#### Unit Fractions:

A fraction having 1 as numerator is called a unit fractions.

For example, 1/5, 1/8, 1/20, 1/23, 1/12 etc. are all unit fractions.

#### Proper Fractions:

A fraction having numerator less than its denominator is called a proper fraction.

For example, 2/5, 8/13, 7/15, 4/23 etc. are all proper fractions.

##### Improper Fractions:

A fraction having numerator greater than its denominator is called an Improper Fraction.

For example, 17/8, 25/13, 37/30, 18/14 etc. are all improper fractions.

##### Mixed Fractions

A combination of a whole number and a proper fraction is called a mixed fraction

For example, 1(3/4), 4(2/3), 6(5/7) etc. are all mixed fractions.

In 1(3/4), and 4(2/3), 1 and 4 are whole numbers and ¾ and 2/3 are proper fractions.

###### Conversion of Mixed Fractions into Improper Fractions and Vice-Versa

To convert a mixed fraction into an improper fraction, we take the following steps:

Step-1: In the given mixed fraction, identify the whole number, the numerator and the numerator and the denominator of the proper fraction.

Step-2: Multiply the whole number by the denominator of the proper fraction and add the result to the numerator of the proper fraction.

Step-3: Write the fraction having numerator equal to the number obtained in step 2 and denominator same as the denominator of the fraction in step 1. Thus,

Improper fraction = {(Whole number × Denominator) + Numerator} / Denominator

### Class 6 Maths Exercise 7.3 Extra Question with Answer

##### Convert each of the following mixed fractions into improper fractions: (i) 4(2/5), (ii) 3(1/5), (iii) 6(4/7)

Convert each of the following mixed fractions into improper fractions:

(i) 4(2/5), (ii) 3(1/5), (iii) 6(4/7)

(i) 4(2/5) = {(4 x 5) + 2}/5 = 22/5

(ii) 3(1/5) = {(3 x 5) + 1}/5 = 16/5

(iii) 6(4/7) = {(6 x 7) + 4}/5 = 46/7

##### Convert each of the following into a mixed fraction: (i) 15/7, (ii) 23/14, (iii) 47/9

(i) On dividing 15 by 7, we get the quotient = 2 and the remainder = 1.

So, 15/7 = 2(1/7)

On dividing 23 by 14, we get the quotient = 1 and the remainder = 9.

So, 23/14 = 1(9/14)

(iii) On dividing 47 by 9, we get the quotient = 5 and the remainder = 2.

So, 47/9 = 5(2/9)

###### To convert an improper fraction into a mixed fraction, we follow the following steps:

Step-1: Divide the numerator by the denominator and obtain the quotient and the remainder.

Step-2: Write the mixed fraction as: Quotient (Remainder/Denominator).

### Class 6 Maths Exercise 7.3 Important Questions

##### What is proper fraction?

A fraction in which the numerator is less or of lower degree than the denominator.

##### What are the 7 types of fractions?

The six kinds of fractions are, proper fractions, improper fractions, mixed fractions, like fractions, unlike fractions and equivalent fractions.

##### How do you express fractions in words?

To express the fraction in words, write the numerator, add a hyphen and then spell out the denominator. In word form, the fraction 3/10 would be spelled out as three-tenths.
