An improper fraction (3/2) greater than (2/2)
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.
That's by the way "improper fraction" is defined. An improper fraction is a number greater than one, written as a single fraction.
The fraction seven and one third is one such fraction.
It is called a improper fraction.
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**
And improper fraction is one where the numerator is greater than the denominator.
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.
The absolute value of the answer will be greater than the absolute value of the original.
If the numerator (top number) is more than the denominator (bottom number), then the fraction is greater than one.
The quotient is less than the fraction.
