Convert 23/5 to a mixed number.
Understand the Problem
The question is asking to convert the improper fraction 23/5 into a mixed number, which involves dividing the numerator by the denominator to find the whole number part and identifying the remainder for the fractional part.
Answer
$ 4 \frac{3}{5} $
Answer for screen readers
$ 4 \frac{3}{5} $
Steps to Solve

Dividing the Numerator by the Denominator
First, divide the numerator (23) by the denominator (5).
$$ 23 \div 5 = 4 $$
This means that there are 4 whole parts. 
Finding the Remainder
Next, calculate the remainder from the division:
$$ 23  (5 \times 4) = 23  20 = 3 $$
So the remainder is 3. 
Constructing the Mixed Number
Now that we have the whole part (4) and the fractional part (the remainder over the original denominator), we combine these:
$$ \text{Mixed Number} = 4 \frac{3}{5} $$ 
Final Result
Therefore, the improper fraction $ \frac{23}{5} $ can be written as the mixed number $ 4 \frac{3}{5} $.
$ 4 \frac{3}{5} $
More Information
Converting improper fractions to mixed numbers helps make them easier to understand and visualize. A mixed number is a combination of a whole number and a proper fraction, which can better represent values in realworld contexts like measurements.
Tips
 Forgetting to calculate the remainder could lead to an incorrect mixed number.
 Not pairing the whole number and the fractional part correctly could cause confusion in writing the final answer.
