A denominator is the bottom number of a fraction. It tells how many equal parts make up the whole. It also names the fraction, such as "half", "thirds", "fourth", etc.

For example:

1/4 - 4 is the denominator and the name of the fraction, one fourth or one quarter.

The denominator is the bottom number in a fraction. For example, if 3/4 was your fraction, the 4 would be your denominator.
