no, if the denominator is larger than the numerator, it is not improper. it is either a proper fraction or a mixed number.

Question seems to be a bit ambiguous but if numerator>denominator it's an improper fraction else, it's a proper fraction.

It is a proper fraction and if the numerator > denominator than it is an improper fraction.

A proper fraction is a fraction whose numerator is less than the denominator.

A fraction is made up of two parts: a numerator (top number) and a denominator (bottom number). There are 3 types of fractions: Proper, Improper, Mixed. A proper fraction is one where the numerator is smaller than the denominator. An improper fraction is one where the numerator is larger or equal to the denominator. A mixed fraction is one with a whole number and a proper fraction together. 11 1/8 is a mixed fraction, and can be written as the improper fraction 89/8. It is impossible to write it as a proper fraction because the numerator is larger than the denominator. Also, all mixed fractions are improper fractions and no improper fractions can be written as proper fractions.

a numerator can be more than the denominator but, if it is it is a improper fraction. so the numerator is less than the denominator do the fraction can be proper.
