## Examples of incorrect fractions

Often, for convenience and a more familiar understanding, an incorrect fraction is represented as a mixed fraction, i.e. one that has an integer part and a correct fraction (one whose numerator is less than the denominator). Here are some examples of irregular and mixed fractions: these are incorrect fractions, because their numerator is greater than or equal to the denominator, i.e. the final number obtained by dividing the numerator by the denominator will be greater than or equal to*1*; these are mixed fractions, because each of them is an integer part and a correct fraction, i.e. when translating a given incorrect fraction into such, we end up with some integer and some remainder in the form of a fraction whose numerator is less than the denominator.
