Regular fractions are the fractions with a numerator that is less than the denominator and irregular fractions are fractions with a denominator less than the numerator.

if they have the same denominator just subtract it . if it doesn't than find the denominator.

Proper fractions.

If the fractions are both proper fractions ... equivalent to less than 1 ... thenthat's always true ... the product is always less than either factor.

That's only true if the fractions are "proper" fractions ... with numerator smaller than denominator. The reason is: If you take (a piece less than the whole thing) out of (a piece less than the whole thing), you wind up with a piece smaller than either of the original pieces.

It need not be. The numbers 1/2 and (-1/2) are both fractions less than 1 but their quotient is -1, which is less than both the fractions.

If you multiply by 1 they stay the same. If you multiply by more than 1 they increase. Fractions less than 1 are less than unity so the products decrease because you are only taking a fraction of the number.

Fractions greater than 1 are to the right of 1 and fractions less than 1 are to its left.

You don't. Proper fractions are less than one, improper fractions are greater.

The only number to fit these constraints is 52.

No, improper fractions (ex: 3/2) are greater than one.

1. Proper Fractions where the numerator is less than denominator. 2. Improper Fractions or top-heavy fractions where the numerator is greater than denominator.
