2. how are imporper fractions and mixed numbers the same?

An improper fraction is a number where the numerator is BIGGER than the denominator. A mixed number is a whole number with a fraction. For example 3 2/3... they are the same because you can change a mixed number into an improper fraction by multiplying the denominator with the whole number and adding the numerator. Let's use the example of 3 2/3...3 x 3 = 9 + 2 = 11/3... that is the improper fraction.
