What is the simalarites betweenproer and improper fractions?

Both proper and improper fractions have a numerator and a denominator. In a proper fraction the numerator is always less than the denominator. In an improper function the numerator is greater than the denominator

Why is the reciprocal of a fraction less than one always a fraction greater than one?

A positive fraction that is less than one is known as a proper fraction. In a proper fraction, the denominator is greater than the numerator. A reciprocal fraction would have a numerator greater than the denominator. Such a fraction is known as an improper fraction. Improper fractions are greater than one.

Why is 5 over 5 an improper fraction?

5/5 is an improper fraction, because it is the same as saying 1. Yes. 5/5 is an improper fraction. Improper fractions are fractions with greater numerator than denominator or with the same numerator and denominator. Thus, improper fractions when changed to decimals are always greater than one or exactly equal to one. 5/5 is exactly equal to one, thus it is an improper fraction.

Why is the recipical of A fraction less than one is always a fraction greater than one?

Fractions that are less than one are known as proper fractions. Their denominators are greater than their numerators. Their reciprocals would have numerators greater than their denominators, making them improper. Improper fractions are greater than one.

Why in improper fraction the numerator is greater than denominator?

That is why it is called an improper fraction because a proper or a common fraction always has its numerator less than its denominator.

What is a fraction equal to 1 half that has a denominator of 6?

When converting fractions to equivalent fractions, it must be remembered that you always multiply the numerator and denominator by the same amount. In this case, the denominator is 2 and we want it to be 6. Therefore we have to multiply top and bottom of the fraction by 3. Do this and we get 3/6. Thus the fraction equal to 1/2 with a denominator of 6 is 3/6.

Is a fraction with a numerator that is greater then or equal to the denominator?

the numerator always has to be less than the denominator and if its equal like 5 to 5 that is 1

What are tha different kinds of fraction?

there are 3 types of fractions proper,improper,mixed proper fractions:-numerator is less than denominator like-2/3,5/7,6/9 improper fractions:- numerator is greater than denominator like-3/2,5/4,9/7 mixed fractions:-always improper fractions are converted to mixed fractions,mixed fractions are combination of proper fractions and whole numbers like-2.2/7,5.3/7

What I there is isn't a lowest common denominator for a fraction?

There is always an LCD for a set of fractions, even if it's only the product of the denominators.

What is the product of two numbers that are reciprocals of one another explain why this is always the case?

A fraction multiplied by its reciprocal is always equal to one. This is because the reciprocal is an inversion of the fraction. The denominator of a fraction is the same number as the numerator of the reciprocal, and vice versa. The product of this is a fraction with the same numbers for the denominator and reciprocal, which is also known as an equivalent fraction. Equivalent fractions are always equal to one.

Are improper fractions always greater than 1?

Yes. That's the definition of an improper fraction. If it's not greater than ' 1 ', then it isn't an improper fraction.

How are fractions and percents different?

A percent is a fraction that always has 100 as the denominator (bottom number). So 14% is 14/100 or 0.14.

When comparing to fractions with the numerator of 1 fraction with the bigger denominator is greater uis that true or not true?

Not true.4 is greater than 2 but 1/4 = 0.25 is NOT greater than 1/2 = 0.5 However, the opposite is also not always true.

Why the quotient of two fractions is always greater than either fraction?

the quotient is always greater than the either fraction because any time when you multiply either number with 1 you will get the whole entire universe heheheheh

How do you mutiply a fraction using the volume?

the same way you always multiply fractions. Change mixed numbers into improper fractions, multiply all numerators to get a new numerator, multiply all denominators to get a new denominator, then reduce the fraction.

When dividing fractions does the answer always end with an improper fraction?

Not always. There are times when division of fractions results in a non-improper fraction.

What is the greater common denominator for 13 and 41?

The greater common denominator of any two or more whole numbers, such as 13 and 41, will always be one (1) because 'common denominator' refers to the denominators of two or more fractions or mixed numbers, not whole numbers. So, a set of whole numbers (x,x) would have to be converted to their fraction equivalents, i.e., x/1, which will always yield a denominator of 1.

What fractions will equal to 1?

Fractions will always equal 1 when their numerator is the same as their denominator

Can fractions always be written as decimals?

You can always convert a fraction to a decimal. For some fractions, you'll get terminating decimals. For example, 1/8 = 0.125. For other fractions, you get repeating decimals, such as 1/7 = 0.142857 142857 142857...To convert the fraction to a decimal, just divide the numerator by the denominator, for example on a calculator.

How does a fraction work?

A fraction represents a part of a whole. Fractions have two parts, the Numerator (top number) and the Denominator (bottom number). The fraction 3/4 means that you have 3 parts of a whole. The numerator (3) indicates the count of the parts. The denominator (4) indicates the total number of parts. Fractions can also be seen as division problems. The denominator is also called the divisor. The fraction 3/4 can be represented as the decimal 0.75, if you divide 3 by 4. If dividing the numerator by the denominator, the result will always be a decimal.

When adding fractions what you always must do is find the?

Common denominator

What is always needed when adding and subtracting fractions?

a common denominator

Using the fraction 4- 6 which number is the denominator?

The denominator in a fraction is always the number on the bottom. I always remembered it by thinking of the D in denominator and the D in the word down.

Is a mixed number irrational?

no No; a mixed number is rational. Irrational means it cannot be written as a fraction, but mixed numbers can always be written as (improper) fractions. *By the way, improper fractions are still fractions, despite their degrading name! It just means the fraction's numerator is larger than its denominator.
