If you used the cross simplification technique, you would see that \(\frac{18}{12}\) reduces to \(\frac{3}{2}\) Most students do it this way: |dw:1377907869624:dw|

Which, yes, can be further reduced to a mixed fraction

If the numerator is bigger than the denominator, then you have an improper fraction. An Improper fraction is just another way of saying that the fraction is not in the simplest form. The simplest form would be the mixed fraction form.

\[\frac{45}{13} = \frac{39 + 6}{13} = 3 + \frac{6}{13} = 3 \frac{6}{13}\]
