Best Answer

An improper fraction is one in which the numerator is equal to or larger than the denominator.

A normal fraction has the top bit smaller than the lower bit like this:

1/2

With an improper fraction the top bit is larger than the lower bit like this:

3/2

an improper fraction is a high number over a lower number like 20-10=2-1

* * * * *

It is a number where the denominator (bottom) is smaller than the absolute value of the numerator (top).

By the earlier definition, -3/2 would not not be an improper fraction because -3 is lower than 2 and so it is not a high number over a lower number.

There are common fractions, improper fractions and equivalent fractions

Some similarities of proper fraction and improper fraction are that they are both fractions.

When you talk about fractions, you do include improper fractions. However, an improper fraction such as 24/6 is hard, because it should really be called 4. Yes, an improper fraction can be defined as a TYPE of fraction.

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 factions with a numerator lower than the denominator but an improper fraction has a greater numerator than the denominator
