Answer

False

Work Step by Step

An improper fraction is a fraction whose numerator is greater than its denominator. Thus, if the numerator us divided by the denominator and: (a) there is a remainder, then the improper fraction can be written as a mixed number; or (b) there is no remainder, then the improper fraction can be written as a whole number. This means that every improper fraction can be written either as a whole number or a mixed number. Therefore, the statement is false.
