A fraction is made up of two parts: a numerator (top number) and a denominator (bottom number).

There are 3 types of fractions: Proper, Improper, Mixed.

A proper fraction is one where the numerator is smaller than the denominator.

An improper fraction is one where the numerator is larger or equal to the denominator.

A mixed fraction is one with a whole number and a proper fraction together.

11 1/8 is a mixed fraction, and can be written as the improper fraction 89/8. It is impossible to write it as a proper fraction because the numerator is larger than the denominator.

Also, all mixed fractions are improper fractions and no improper fractions can be written as proper fractions.
