A fraction is a part of a whole. It describes how many parts it has.
There are 2 parts to a fraction. A numerator, and a denominator. The numerator is the top part of the fraction, and the denominator is the bottom part of the fraction.
A proper fraction is where the numerator is less than the denominator. For example, 8/10 is a proper fraction
An improper fraction is where the denominator is greater than the numerator. For example, 10/6 is an improper fraction.
A mixed fraction is a fraction that has both a whole number and a fractional component.
A reciprocal is where the numerator and denominator are reversed. By multiplying a fraction with its reciprocal, it will always equal to 1.
Equivalent fractions are fractions that have different numbers, but they have the same value.
A decimal can also be used to represent fractions. For example, 0.8 is the same as 8/10.
A fraction can also be represented as a percent. For example, 8/10 is the same as 80%.
