## Thinking Mathematically (6th Edition)

Sum of a rational number and an integer is called a mixed number. A rational number in which numerator is greater than the denominator is called an improper fraction. An improper fraction can be converted into a mixed fraction by dividing a denominator into the numerator and expressing the mixed fraction as$quotient\frac{remainder}{divisor}$. Thus, the problem is solved as follows: $\frac{47}{5}=$5\overset{8}{\overline{\left){\begin{align} & 47 \\ & \underline{40} \\ & 07 \\ \end{align}}\right.}} Thus, $\frac{47}{5}=8\frac{7}{5}$.
