    Correct Answer
    A. An improper fraction is when the numerator is bigger than the denominator. It is another way to show a mixed number.
    Explanation
    An improper fraction is when the numerator is bigger than the denominator. It is another way to show a mixed number. This means that the fraction represents a value that is greater than one whole unit. It is called "improper" because it does not follow the traditional format of having a smaller numerator and a larger denominator. Instead, the numerator is larger, indicating that there are more parts of the whole than there are wholes. This type of fraction can also be converted into a mixed number, which consists of a whole number and a proper fraction.
