numerator

It is the denominator

A fraction names part of a region or part of a group. The top number of a fraction is called its numerator and the bottom part is its denominator. They are separated by a line called a "fraction bar."

It is the denominator of the fraction as for example 3/4 whereas 4 is the denominator and 3 is the numerator

A fraction is a "fraction" because it represent a number of smaller "pieces" or "parts" of a whole. For example 1/3 represents one of three equal sections of a whole object (1). The fraction 2/3 is equal to two of those parts (thirds) of the whole. Sometimes fractions will be "improper" with a larger numerator than a denominator. Working with the number 4/3 is usually more convenient than using the equivalent "mixed number" which is 1 1/3 -- and where the decimal version is not exact (1.333333...).

The denominator is the bottom number of the fraction. It tells how many parts in all. The numerator is the top number of the fraction which tells you the number of parts considered.

The denominator (bottom number) of a fraction tells you the number of equal parts (in a whole); The numerator (top number) of a fraction tells you how many of those parts. You have five parts out of 9 equal parts which is 5/9

A number that describes a part of a set of a part of a whole that is divided into parts is called a fraction. The numerator shows a number of equal parts. The denominator shows how many parts make a whole.

That is called the denominator, and the top is the numerator.:)
