Certainly, here is an example of an improper fraction:
5/3
An improper fraction is a fraction where the numerator (the top number) is greater than the denominator (the bottom number).
In the example of 5/3:
 The numerator is 5, which is greater than the denominator of 3.
 This means that 5/3 represents a quantity that is greater than 1 whole.

Improper fractions can be converted to mixed numbers, which consist of a whole number and a proper fraction.
