A proper fraction is defined as a fraction that is less than one.
If the fraction has a greater numerator than the denominator than the fraction is greater than one If the fraction has a numerator less than the denominator than the fraction is less than one If the numerator and the denominator are the same numbers than the fraction is equal to one **The numerator is the top number; the denominator is the bottom number**
... less than the original fraction.
That is true.
One-fifth is one simple fraction that is less than one quarter.
If the numerator is less than the denominator, the fraction is less than one. For example, 5/7 is less than one. If the numerator is greater than the denominator, the fraction is greater than one. For example, 10/7 is more than one.
