# how to change improper fractions to mixed numbers?

for example. 11 over 5

• Answer #1

11/5 Would be 2 and 1/5. This is because 11 can be divided by 5 twice, and there's one remaining. 5 pieces of chocolate equal a chocolate bar, so if you have 11 pieces of chocolate, you can make 2 and 1/5 chocolate bars. I always find it easier if I think about it with pie, or chocolate bars. Hope I helps!
