    • 1). Write down the improper fraction -- for example, 27/6. The fraction bar means you need to divide 27 by 6.

    • 2). Divide 27 by 6. The answer is 4, with a remainder of 3. Use the answer as the whole number part of the mixed number, and place the remainder over the original denominator: 4 3/6.
