First, let's convert the mixed number to an improper fraction with the same denominator.

-

- To get the numerator of the improper fraction, multiply the denominator (M_DENOM_REDUCED) by the whole number (WHOLE) and add the numerator (M_NUM_REDUCED). -

To get the numerator of the improper fraction, multiply the denominator (M_DENOM_REDUCED) by the whole number (WHOLE) and add the numerator (M_NUM_REDUCED).

M_DENOM_REDUCED \cdot WHOLE+M_NUM_REDUCED = M_AS_I

-

- We can write the mixed number as an improper fraction with numerator M_AS_I and denominator M_DENOM_REDUCED. -

-

- Now we need to compare fraction ( M_AS_I, M_DENOM_REDUCED, false, true ) to fraction ( I_NUM, I_DENOM, false, true ). -

Now we need to compare fraction ( M_AS_I, M_DENOM_REDUCED, false, true ) to fraction ( I_NUM, I_DENOM, false, true ).

It is easier to compare these two fractions when they have the same denominator.

-

- Their smallest common denominator is the LCM of M_DENOM_REDUCED and I_DENOM. -

+

Their smallest common denominator is the LCM of M_DENOM_REDUCED and I_DENOM.

\lcm(M_DENOM_REDUCED, I_DENOM) = LCM

The first fraction BECOMES_1 \dfrac{M_AS_I * F1}{LCM}.
