Fractions Improper Fraction

A Fraction (such as 3 / 8 ) has two numbers: Fractions Numerator Denominator The top number is the Numerator, it is the number of parts you have. The bottom number is the Denominator, it is the number of parts the whole is divided into Example: 3 / 4 means: We have 3 parts Each part is a quarter ( 1 / 4 ) of a whole

Three Types of Fractions There are three types of fraction:

Proper Fractions: The numerator is less than the denominator Examples : 1 / 3 3 / 4 2 / 7 Improper Fractions: The numerator is greater than (or equal to) the denominator Examples: 4 / 3 11 / 4 7 / 7 Mixed Fractions: A whole number and proper fraction together Examples: 1 1 / 3 2 1 / 4 16 2 / 5 So we can define the three types of fractions like this:

Question 1 Which one of the following is NOT a proper fraction?

A proper fraction is a fraction where the numerator (the top number) is less than the denominator (the bottom number).

Which one of the following is NOT an improper fraction? Question 2

An improper fraction is a fraction where the numerator (the top number) is greater than or equal to the denominator (the bottom number).

Question 3 Which one of the following is a mixed fraction?

A mixed fraction is a whole number and proper fraction together
