CONCEPT OF FRACTION

__FRACTION __

**Fraction is a concept where it represents a small part of
whole things or objects. If any ball is divided into four equal parts, then each
part will be called one fourth and is denoted by ¼ . The line separating 1 & 4 indicates
division ¼ is a fraction.**

**As another example for better understanding, We would like
to give you a similar example – if orange is divided into 10 parts then each
three parts will be called three tenth, and will be denoted by 3/10. The line
separating by 3 & 10 indicates division 3/10 is a fraction. Similarly 1/2,
2/3, 3/7, 9/11, and 14/19 are also fraction. In any fraction a/b, a is called
the numerator and b is called the denominator. For example, in the fraction
7/15, the numerator = 7 and the denominator = 15.**

**Classification of
Fraction –**

__Common ( or simple or vulgar ) Fraction –__

**The numerator is any integers and the denominator is a
nonzero integer other than 10, 100, 1000, etc. in a common fraction. 1/8, 5/7, and 17/77 are some common fraction.**

__Decimal Fraction –__

**The denominator is some power of ten such as 10, 100, 1000,
etc. in a decimal fraction, 3/11, 17/103, and 3/1000 are some decimal
fraction.**

__Complex Fraction – __

**A fraction in which the numerator or denominator or both
contain fraction is called a complex fraction **

** 7/3 9/8 7/11**

**-------- , -------- and -------- ****are some complex fraction**

** 5/9 7/25 9/37**

__Proper Fraction –__

**The numerator is less than the denominator in a proper fraction
1 / 4, 11/38, 127/1273 are some example of proper fraction**

__Improper Fraction –__

**The numerator is equal to or greater than the denominator in
an improper fraction, 32/3, 121/77, and 1327/73 are some improper fraction**

**Mixed Fraction ( Or Number) - **

**An integer together with a proper fraction is called a mixed fraction.**

** 5 9 8**

** 3 ------, 8 ------- and 12 ------- a****re some example of mixed **

** 9 17 15**

** ****fraction.**

**As you can observe that, in
3 -------, 3 is called the Integral Part,**
