  9. Improper fraction These are the fractions in which the numerator is greater than the denominator. . Can be converted into mixed fraction .E.9 71 QO 2, |

  10. Mixed Fraction These are improper fractions only, expressed using whole numbers and proper fractions. Can be converted to improper fraction. .E.g 2
