# How do you make an mixed fraction for 80/5?

Apr 11, 2018

To convert an improper fraction-$\frac{80}{5}$ into a mixed number we divide the denominator (5) into the numerator (80). This answer is our whole number and the remainder goes over the original denominator (5) to make the fraction.
But $\frac{80}{5}$=16 with no remainder
This means our answer would be $\frac{80}{5} = 16 \frac{0}{5}$ but we don't write $\frac{0}{5}$ therefore the answer is just a whole number.
