dani,
It is only adding 1 whole number to the fraction that make looks like improper fraction; say
1 1/4 = 5/4; adding 4/4 to 1/4. 4/4 is the fraction of 1 taken from the whole number
8 5/12 = 7 17/12 (added 12/12 to 5/12)
4 5/9 = 3 14/9 (added 9/9 to 5/9)
2 1/3 = 1 4/3 (added 3/3 to 1/3)

An easy way to solve is to multiply the coefficient (number in front of fraction) by the denominator (number in the bottom of the fraction) and place that number above denominator.
4 3/4 = (4x4) + 3)/4= 19/4
8 5/12 = (8x12) +5)/12 = 101/12 (add 96/12 + 5/12)
4 5/9 = ((4x9) +5)/9 = 41/9 (add 36/9 + 5/9)
2 1/3 = ((2x3) +1)/3 = 7/3 (add 6/3 + 1/3)
The first answer for the first question is right but in the next three questions you are just adding 1 instead of the correct number stated by the coefficient (number in front of the fraction)
heres another example:
3 5/7 = add (3x7)/7 and 5/7 = 21/7 + 5/7 = 26/7
^
^coefficient is 3 and 21/7 = 3
