Here the numerator is 29 and the denominator is 7. Dividing 29 by 7 gives us:

1. The whole part of the mixed fraction is the quotient of this division. So the whole part is 7.
2. The numerator of the fractional part of the mixed fraction is the remainder of the above division.

Thus, the numerator is 1.

1. The denominator of the fractional part of the mixed fraction is the divisor of the above division.

Thus, the denominator is 4.

So, the improper fraction 29 can be written as 7 1.
