Work Step by Step

First, we must remember that an improper fraction is a fraction that has a numerator grater than a denominator. To convert an improper number, such as $\frac{27}{5}$, to a mixed number, divide the denominator into the numerator and write the mixed number in the following format: $$ quotient \frac{remainder}{denominator} $$ For the mixed number, when we divide the denominator $27$ into the numerator $5$, $$27 \div 5$$ we get the quotient to be $5$ and the remainder to be $2$ Hense, the required mixed number is 5$\frac{2}{5}$.
