A simple fraction is a fraction that is a whole number divided by a whole number. Complex fractions can have fractions inside of fractions.

To estimate fractions you need to determine what the nearest whole number is and round down or up. To find the exact number you need to convert the fractions to the same denominator.

you write fractions as a mixed number by dividing what ever number thats in the fraction how do you write 0.304 as a fraction?

First add all the fractions together. Then, divide this sum by the total number of fractions that were in the set. This quotient is your average fraction.

A proper fraction is less than 1. Whenever you multiply something by a number < 1, the result (product) is less than the original number. So when you multiply a proper fraction by a number less one (such as another proper fraction, the product is less than the original proper fraction. The only time a product involving a given number is larger than the given number is when you multiply the given number by a number that is > 1. Since all proper fractions are < 1, products involving them are always less than the original given number.

38 is not a fraction.

A consecutive fraction is a number written as a series of alternating multiplicative inverses and integer addition operators. Consecutive fractions are studied in the number theory branch of mathematics. Consecutive fractions are also known as continued fractions and extended fractions.

Mixed fractions can be converted into improper fractions then changed back to a mixed number.

Well there are different kinds of fractions their are mixed numbers, regular fractions and improper fractionsThere are 5 kinds of fraction. Proper fraction, improper fraction, mixed number, unit fraction, and equivalent fractions. An example of a proper fraction is 3/4. An example of an improper fractions is 13/12. An example of a mixed number is 1 1/4. An example of a unit fraction is 1/3. An example of equivalent fractions is 4/8=1/2.I hope you like my answer... :)

May be a whole number, a mixed number, or another fraction, depending on what the original two fractions are.

Take the numerator (top number of the fraction) and divide it by the denominator (bottom number of the fraction).

You convert them both to improper fractions by multiplying the denominators by the whole number and then adding the numerator to it. This number goes in the numerator and the denominator stays the same. Then you do this for the other fraction, making sure that the denominators of each fraction are equivalent. Then add the fractions as normal.

A proper fraction is but mixed fractions, which are also often called fractions, are greater than 1.

As the denominator increases the fraction will be smaller but there is no limit to how tiny that fraction can be. So between any two numbers on the number line, you can have an infinite number of fractions.

divide the numerator (top number of the fraction) by the denominator (bottom number of the fraction)

Not all numbers can be turned into fractions: it depends on the number.

You do the numerator divided by the denominator, then simplify the fractions if you can. (this is how you change a improper fraction to a mixed number, you cannot change a proper fraction to a mixed number)

turn both fractions into decimals and then multiply!

The answer depends on the fraction. If it is a ratio of two integers then the rational number is the fraction itself. If the numerator or denominator of the fraction is irrational then the fraction may be irrational and so may not have a rational number.

No. A mixed number is one where there is a whole number and a fraction. If the whole number is 0 there is no whole number and all that remains is the fraction. All improper (top heavy) fractions can be converted to a mixed number.

An infinite amount.

no a fraction is only part of a number

Equivalent fractions.

You change the mixed number into an inproper fraction.

To halve a fraction, double the denominator (the bottom number). To double a fraction, double the numerator (the top number).
