Why is the reciprocal of a fraction less than one always a fraction greater than one?

Why is an improper fraction greater than a proper fraction?

A proper fraction is a fraction who's numerator is smaller than the denominator. An improper fraction is a fraction who's numerator is larger than or equal to the denominator. 1/2 is a proper fraction. 3/2 is an improper fraction. Now to understand why the improper fraction is larger than the proper fraction, lets split them up. The proper fraction is one half of a whole, whereas the improper fraction is one whole and one half. Basically the proper is one half, and the improper is three halves. In theory, a proper fraction is always less than the whole number under consideration. On the other hand, an improper fraction is either equal to or larger than the whole number under consideration.


Is the reciprocal of an improper fraction sometimes always or never a proper fraction?

For a fraction A/B, the fraction is improper if A > B. The reciprocal is B/A. So now A is the denominator, and B is the numerator, and B < A, so the reciprocal is a proper fraction. The answer would be always.
