INTRO
A mixed number tells us how many whole numbers and parts we have, and an improper fraction tells us how many total parts we have when the parts make up at least one whole.
We can use an improper fraction and a mixed number to represent the same thing. For example, we can either say we have 2 whole pizzas and 3 slices of pizza, where 4 slices make up a whole:
Or we can say we have slices of pizza where 4 slices make up a whole:
They're just two ways of saying the same thing 👯.

KEY STEPS

## How to Convert from Improper Fractions to Mixed Numbers

Convert a

### Step 1. Explain the fraction.

In pizza terms, for example, means there are total slices where slices make up a whole pizza.

### Step 2. Set up the conversion.

We want to split up our fraction into a whole number and the leftover fraction:
In pizza terms, this is like figuring out how many whole pizzas and leftover slices there are:

### Step 3. Find the whole number.

This is equal to the number of times the denominator goes into the numerator and tells us how many whole numbers we can make from the total number of equal parts we have.
In pizza terms, we're figuring out how many whole pizzas we can make:

### Step 4. Find the leftover/remainder.

In pizza terms, this is like finding the leftover slices after forming our whole pizzas:
Ex:

### Step 5. Drop the plus sign.
