Answer:

#9/2 = 4 1/2#

Explanation:

An improper fraction means that all the whole numbers are given as fractions.

'Counting in halves' would be:

#1/2" "2/2" "3/2" "4/2" "5/2" "6/2" "7/2" "8/2" "9/2#

Or in mixed numbers:

#1/2" "1" "1 1/2" "2" "2 1/2" "3" " 3 1/2" "4" "4 1/2#

To convert an improper fraction into a mixed number, divide the numerator by the denominator to find out how many whole numbers there are. The remainder is given as a fraction with the same denominator.

#9/2 = 9 div2#

#9div 2 = 4 " remainder " 1#

#9/2 = 4 1/2#

Another example: #23/5 = 23div5#

#23 div 5 = 4 " remainder "3#

#23/5 = 4 3/5#
