Divide the numerator by denominator.
Write down the whole number answer.
Then write down any remainder above the denominator.

The improper fraction is $\dfrac{{11}}{5}$. It is an improper fraction since its numerator is greater than its denominator.

Step 1: Divide the numerator by denominator
$11 \div 5 = 2{\text{ with a remainder of }}1$
Step 2: Write down the whole number answer
i.e., 2
step 3: Then write down any remainder above the denominator
i.e., $2\dfrac{1}{5}$

Thus, the mixed fraction of $\dfrac{{11}}{5}$ is $2\dfrac{1}{5}$.

Note: In this problem to find mixed fraction first we should know what is a proper fraction. A proper fraction is a fraction whose numerator is smaller than its denominator. Divide the numerator with the denominator until you get the remainder less than the denominator.
