Worksheet Overview

Look at the fraction sum below.


3/5 + 4/5 = 7/5

This means 3 fifths + 4 fifths = 7 fifths.


7 fifths is a top-heavy improper fraction.


7 ÷ 5 = remainder 2.

7 fifths can be changed to the mixed number one and 2 fifths.


7/5 = 1 2/5


Work out the answer to this addition as a mixed number.


5/7 + 6/7 = ?


5/7 + 6/7 = 11/7

5 sevenths added to 6 sevenths = 11 sevenths.

11 sevenths is a top-heavy improper fraction.


11 ÷ 7 = 1 remainder 4

11 sevenths can be changed to the mixed number one and 4 sevenths.

So, 11/7 = 1 4/7
