Hi Jayden!

3 and 4/6 is written as (6*3) + 4 = 22 as the numerator of the improper function while the denominator is still 6. So, the simplified version is 22/6.

Hope this helps! If you have further questions, please reach out.

Multiply the denominator and first number (6 x 3 ) which is 18

Add this to the numerator (18+4 ) which is 22

The denominater remains the same
