Numerator

A fraction is in its simplest form when the numerator (number above the line) and denominator (number below the line) have no factor in common - other than 1.

It is a fraction if the number below the line is not zero. If the ABSOLUTE value of the number above the line is smaller than the ABSOLUTE value of the number below the line then it is a proper fraction. Otherwise it is an improper fraction.So, -7 is smaller than 2 but -7/2 is not a proper fraction because the absolute value of -7 (which is 7) is not smaller than the absolute value of 2 (= 2).
