Divide the nominator by the denominator.

There is no such term as the nominator. The numerator goes on top and the denominator on the bottom.

Divide the top and bottom (nominator and denominator) by the largest number they both can be divided by. In this case 4/32 divide the nominator and denominator by 4. This equals 1/8.

"The numerator and denominator are known as the fraction bar.”

multiply the nominator and denominator of each fraction by the denominator of the other fraction

To double a fraction double the numerator and keep the denominator unchanged.

Multiply or divide both the nominator and denominator. For example your fraction is 1/2: you could: multiply by 2 and get 2/4 which is equal.

To convert a proper fraction to an improper fraction you multiply the whole number by the denominator plus the nominator and put your answer in your nominator spot over your same denominator. EXAMPLE:7 and a half converted into a improper fraction would be 15 over 2.

That's a complex fraction.

In a fraction, the numerator represent the part out of the denominator which represents the total. Neither need be rational (or even real).

This is a complex fraction. Remember the 'slash' line in fractions means 'divide'. So if we have an example such as 1/2/3/4. We can separate with out by writing (1/2)/(3/4) ; note the use of brackets for clarity. Now the rule for division of fractions is invert the denomination(right hand) faction and proceed as for multiplication of fractions/ Hence 1/2/3/4 = ( 1/2) / (3/4) = > 1/2 X 4/3 Cancel down by '2' 1/1 X 2/3 = 2/3 The Answer to '1/2/3/4'. Amother example/ 2/3/4/9 = (2/3) /(4/9) (2/3)/(4/9) => 2/3 X 9/4Cancel down by '2' 1/3 X 9/2 Cancel down by '3' 1/1 x 3/2 = 3/2 '3/2' is an Improper (top heavy)Fraction and becomes 1 1/2 as a mixed number. Hence 1 1/2 = 2/3/4/9 Hope that helps!!!!
