Rounding Mixed Numbers to Nearest Whole Number

Method:
  1. Look at the following mixed fractions.
  2. Approximate the fractional part to the nearest whole number.
  3. Add that to the whole number

Example: 4 3/4 - Round the fractional part.
  1. (Numerator) 3 is more than half of 4 (denominator), and hence greater than half of 4.
