Once you learn this skill, you'll find yourself using it all the time, so take look at how to convert a mixed fraction to an improper fraction.
The natural numbers are also called the counting numbers.
This tutorial shows you how to take a word problem and translate it into a mathematical equation involving a complex fraction.
Then, you'll see how to simplify the complex fraction to get the answer. Working with mixed fractions in equations can be tough, but things get easier if you convert them into improper fractions first.
For example, the nine in the dividend 59 is brought down and placed next to the 1 to form the number 19.
Repeat this process until all of the numbers in the dividend have been brought down.
And then if we were to subtract and we can regroup up here, we can take a 10 from the 60, so it becomes a 50, give that 10 to the 3, so it becomes a 13. You could say 63 divided by 35 is equal to 1 remainder 28. We know that the real answer is going to be one point something, something, something. I want to divide this thing completely and see what type of a decimal I actually get.
So you could just say, hey, 63 divided by 35-- let me write this.
You will often see other versions, which are generally just a shortened version of the process below.
You can also see this done in Long Division Animation.
