What is 2 1/2 written as an improper fraction?

1 Answer

2

2 1/2 as an improper fraction is 5/2

First, split the mixed fraction into the sum of a whole number and a fraction:

2 1/2 =>2+ 1/2

Then, rewrite the whole number as an equivalent fraction:  2 => 4/2

Lastly, add together the two fractions to get the answer:

4/2 + 1/2 = 5/2
