$21 \div 5$
$\textcolor{w h i t e}{\text{XXX")=color(red)(21/5color(white)("XXX")"improper fraction}}$

color(white)("XXX")=color(blue)(4 1/5color(white)("XXX")"mixed number"

#### Explanation:

I assume this is just a problem of being uncertain of the definitions for $\textcolor{red}{\text{improper fraction}}$ and $\textcolor{b l u e}{\text{mixed number}}$.

Hopefully, this example will clarify these terms.
