Write this as a improper fraction $\huge~\rm~7\frac{1 }{ 2}$

$6\frac{ 3 }{ 2 }?$

4. pooja195

Improper fraction...

5. pooja195

$\huge~\rm~Denominator \times~Unit$

2*6

$\frac{ 12 }{ 2 }$

8. pooja195

6?

oh nvm

$\frac{ 14 }{ 2 }$

11. pooja195

7 x 2=14 +1=15 /2

ok

13. pooja195

Then we multiply the top and bottom by 2

$\frac{ 30 }{ 4 }$

15. pooja195

we get 30/4 7 1/2 = 15/2 = 30/4 2 3/4 = 11/4 length:width = (30/4):(11/4) = 30:11

ok thx pooj
