We can often have fractions whose numerators are not less than the denominators (like 23/4 or 3/2 or even 6/6). These top-heavy friends are called improper fractions. Since they represent a whole or more (in absolute terms), they can also be expressed as a combination of a whole number and a "proper fraction" (one where the numerator is less than the denominator) which is called a "mixed number." They are both awesome ways of representing a number and getting acquainted with both (as this tutorial does) is super useful in life!
