Converting Improper Fractions to Whole
or Mixed Numbers
2 Steps
• 1 Divide the numerator by the
denominator
• 2a. If you have no remainder,
the quotient is a whole
number
• 2b. If you have a remainder,
the quotient is a mixed
number

Finding the Greatest Common Divisor
Step 1. Divide the
numerator into the
denominator - 12
30
Step 2. Divide the
remainder in Step 1 into
the divisor of Step 1
Step 3. Divide the
remainder of Step 2 into
the divisor of Step 2.
Continue until the
remainder is 0
