Whole = 1 Two parts of whole Each part = 1 out of 2 = © Teachable and Nitu Duggal. Some rights reserved. http://teachable.net/res.asp?r=929

Whole = 1 Four parts of whole Each part = 1 out of 4 = © Teachable and Nitu Duggal. Some rights reserved. http://teachable.net/res.asp?r=929

Whole = 1 Eight parts of whole Each part = 1 out of 8 = © Teachable and Nitu Duggal. Some rights reserved. http://teachable.net/res.asp?r=929

A whole can be divided into any number of parts. The golden rule for fractions is that the parts must be equal. 2, 3, 4, 5, 6… 10… 50… 100… 200… any number!

For example: 2 equal parts 3 equal parts 4 equal parts 5 equal parts 16 equal parts And so on… © Teachable and Nitu Duggal. Some rights reserved. http://teachable.net/res.asp?r=929

The total number of equal parts becomes the bottom part of the fraction. It is called the DENOMINATOR For example: Denominator = 4 Denominator = 8 © Teachable and Nitu Duggal. Some rights reserved. http://teachable.net/res.asp?r=929

The number of parts that are referred to becomes the top part of the fraction. It is called the NUMERATOR For example: When we refer to striped parts Numerator = 3Numerator = 1

So a fraction is written as: Number of parts referred (NUMERATOR) Total number of parts of the whole (DENOMINATOR) For example: Striped parts = Striped parts = © Teachable and Nitu Duggal. Some rights reserved. http://teachable.net/res.asp?r=929

Lets see more examples Striped parts = Striped part = Numerator Denominator Numerator Denominator © Teachable and Nitu Duggal. Some rights reserved. http://teachable.net/res.asp?r=929

Striped part = Striped parts = Numerator Denominator Numerator © Teachable and Nitu Duggal. Some rights reserved. http://teachable.net/res.asp?r=929

A fraction is part of a whole. All parts in a fraction are equal. A fraction has a Denominator which is written in the bottom. It represents the total number of parts of the whole. It has a Numerator which is written on the top. It represents the number of parts that are being referred to out of the total parts. © Teachable and Nitu Duggal.
