If we know the improper fraction form is 7/5, we can figure out the corresponding mixed number. To go from improper fraction to mixed number, we need to change 7/5 into a (whole number) (number/number) like 1 1/3 and 1 1/2.
How many times does 5 fit into 7? Only once, so the first number of our mixed number is 1. When we subtract 5 from 7, we're left with 2. So the numerator of our mixed fraction is 2, and our denominator stays at 5. So 7/5 = 1 2/5.
