IMproper Fractions > 1.
Such a fraction as '22/7' is an improper fraction. It reduces to 3 1/7 This is also an approximation to 'pi = 3.141592....'.
Fractions greater than 1 are to the right of 1 and fractions less than 1 are to its left.
Fractions that are greater than one are known as improper or 'top-heavy' fractions as the numerator is greater than the denominator.
All improper fractions, like 22/7, are greater than one.
The product is not always greater than 1.
That only happens if they're both improper fractions, i.e. greater than ' 1 '.
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.
It is a mixed or improper fraction.
1. Proper Fractions where the numerator is less than denominator. 2. Improper Fractions or top-heavy fractions where the numerator is greater than denominator.
Improper fractions are always > 1. Reason, the numerator (top) is always larger than the denominator(bottom). NB Improper fractions is the correct term for 'Top Heavy' fractions.
Proper fractions are less than one.. Their numerators re less than their denominators. Their reciprocals have numerators greater than their denominators, making them improper. Improper fractions are greater than 1.
