A mixed fraction contains both a whole number and a fraction
Simplifying fractions
Simplify 20
50

20
50
Factors of 20 are: 1, 2, 4, 5, 10
Factors of 50 are: 1, 2, 5, 10, 25, 50
Divide top and bottom of fraction by 10
It's easy !
It's the same thing!!!
Then change to a mixed number
Divide the denominator (bottom)
into the numerator (top)
11 divided by 5 is with a remainder of 1
The remainder is the numerator
that's the number
on top

With the same denominators
With the same denominators
(or 2 x 5 = 10 + 1 = 11)
10 is common to both
20 and 50

Mulitiply
the whole number by the denominator then
the numerator - 7 x 3 = 21 + 1 = 22
This becomes the numerator
The denominator remains the same
