There are three types of fraction:


A Fraction (such as 7/4) has two numbers:



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: 7/4 means:

We have 7 parts

Each part is a quarter (1/4) of a whole

So we can define the three types of fractions like this:

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
