a numerator is the top number of a fraction and the demonatior is the bottom number of a fraction

The numerator is the top line , it tells you how many of the fraction you have (enumerates it, if you like). The bottom is the denominator, it tells you what kind of fraction it is (what denomination it is).

first, change the division sign to a muliplication sign. then change the second number in the problem-change the numerator to the denominator and the denominator to the numerator. then multiply the top numbers and bottom numbers like regular multiplication.

If it is divided by a fraction or a decimal. Like 1/5 or .986

No because you have too multiply the numerator and denominator by the the same number to have an equivalent fraction.

On the common Texas Instrument (TI) it looks like a fraction with a square instead of a number for the denominator and numerator. If you cannot find that button you can also put the fraction as division inside parenthesis for example 1 half could be put in as (1/2)

When the numerator of a fraction is greater than its denominator then it is classed as an improper fraction as in the example of 5/3

Numerator.

If the numerator is greater than the denominator then it is an improper fraction as for example 5/3 but if the numerator is less than the denominator then it is a common fraction as for example 3/4

That sounds like a fraction. The top part is called numerator, the bottom part is called the denominator.
