    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.

    Other examples of improper fractions include:

    • 7/4
    • 11/6
    • 99/25

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

    For example, 5/3 can be converted to the mixed number 1 2/3.

    So in summary, an improper fraction is a fraction where the numerator is larger than the denominator, representing a quantity greater than 1 whole.
