Fraction whose numerator is less than its denominator
is called Proper fraction. Proper fraction is always less than a whole.
Here, Numerator < Denominator (Numerator is smaller
Therefore 3/5 is a proper fraction.
Fraction whose numerator is more than or equal to its
denominator is called Improper fraction.
Here, Numerator > Denominator (Numerator is greater
Therefore 8/5 is an improper fraction.
A fraction with numerator 1 is called Unit fraction.
1/9 , 1/8
Fraction made up of a whole number and a proper number
is called Mixed fraction. Example:
Here, 5 is a whole number and ¾ is a proper
Changing a Mixed Fraction into Improper
Step1: First multiply the
whole number with denominator.
Step2: Then add product of
whole number and denominator with numerator
Step3: Write the
resultant number as numerator. Also write the denominator.
5 x 4 +3 = 23
Improper Fraction = 23/4
Comparing a mixed fraction with an improper
Step1: Change the mixed
fraction into improper fraction.
Step2: Compare 11/2 and
As 11 > 3
Therefore 11/2 > 3/2
Comparing two mixed fraction
1: When integral parts are different
Compare the integral part: 4 > 2
2: When integral parts are same
As integral part are same, so we will
compare 2/7 and 1/3 using cross multiplication.
2 x 3
< 1 x 7
