A fraction can be larger than 1, for example, 4/2 is a fraction (which can be simplified to 2). Only a fraction that is larger than 1, multiplied by another number gives you a larger number.
You can have fractions larger than 1. For example, 9/8 is a fraction that is larger than 1, as is 100000000000000000000000/3. Thus, the greatest possible fraction in the universe is greater than 1.
Any fraction where the numerator is larger than the denominator (improper fraction.) 3/2 can also be written as 1 1/2.
The number (the fraction) is greater than one.
Any fraction larger than 1/2 like 5/8 or 7/11.
31/1 or 63/2
One seventh is larger than one eighth. The smaller the number under a 1 in a fraction, the larger that fraction is. Think 1/4, 1/3, 1/2 and you'll see the size of the fraction increasing; the numbers are becoming larger.
In that phrase, "unit" means "equal to 1".
An improper fraction has a numerator larger than the denominator. -13/1 will be your answer.
Rules for dividing by a fraction are multiply by the reciprocal. The reciprocal of a unit fraction is a whole number. Multiplying by a whole number will make the answer (quotient) larger. ex unit fraction 1/a 7 divided by 1/a = 7 x a/1 = 7a .... a times larger than 7.
it is smaller (1/2)/2=.25
A fraction of a fraction is yet another (usually smaller) fraction. For example 1/4 of 1/3 = (1x1) / (4x3) = 1/12 Only when both or one of the fractions is an "improper" fraction (larger than 1) does the multiplication give a result that is larger than the beginning fractions. For example : 7/4 x 3/5 = 21/20 = 1 1/20
