Answer:

#10/3 = 3 1/3#

Explanation:

To reduce a top heavy fraction (where the number on top is bigger than the bottom) to a mixed number, the numerator (top) will be divided by the denominator (bottom).

For #10/3#, the #10# can be divided by #3# to take out the number of times #3# occurs in #10#.

#10/3 = (9+1)/3 = (3*3*3+1)/3 = (3(3)+1)/3 = 3 1/3#
