Example 1: Check whether the given fraction, 54/42 is improper fraction or not, and simplify.


Given fraction: 54/42

In the above fraction -> Number in denominator (42)< Number in numerator (54)

Hence, yes it is an improper fraction!

In order to simplify the given fraction, we can split the numbers into prime factors.

54 = 2 * 3 * 3 * 3

42 = 2 * 3 * 7

Cancelling the common factors, we get -> 54/42 = 9/7 -> this is also an improper fraction!

Hence the simplified form of 54/42 = 9/7.



Example 2: Add the given improper fractions, 13/12 and 15/12


To the add the given fractions, the fraction notation looks like -> 13/12 + 15/12

In order to add two fractions, we need to first have a common denominator.

’12’ is already a common denominator, hence we get:

13/12 + 15/12 = (13 + 15)/12 ->  28/12

We can simplify it further by dividing numerator and denominator by ‘4’  ->   28/12 = 7/3

Hence we get 13/12 + 15/12 = 28/12 -> 7/3
