Shortcut for Converting an Improper Fraction

An improper fraction contains a numerator greater than the denominator. A mixed fraction contains a whole number and a fraction.

Try this shortcut for converting an improper fraction into a mixed fraction. The video works several example problems in order to show you how to set up this shortcut. 

The shortcut involves placing the denominator under a division sign, and dividing by the denominator.

The video solves the following problems.

Convert 7/2 to a mixed number.

Convert 9/4  

 Convert 15/7 

 Convert 48/9 to a mixed fraction

I find this shortcut helpful, and an alternative to the traditional method of changing an improper fraction to a mixed fraction. Try it yourself.
