The fraction 13/4 is equivalent to 3 1/4

Dividing 13 by 4 we get 3 with remainder 1.

Now we rewrite 13/4 as

13/4 = 12/4 + 1/4 = 3 + 1/4 = 3 1/4 (answer)

This fraction is a IMPROPER FRACTION once the absolute value of the top number or numerator (13) is greater than the absolute value of the bottom number or denomintor (4). So, the equivalent fraction is a MIXED NUMBER which is made up of a whole number (3) and proper fraction (1/4).

The fraction 13/4 is equal to 13รท4 and can also be expressed in decimal form as 3.25.
