It is another fraction, as well as its negative value.

A fraction with a value of less than zero.

Convert the absolute value of the decimal to a fraction and then put a minus sign before it.

If you mean the difference in terms of numerical value, then it is the positive faction minus the negative faction, which is calculated as the positive fraction plus the absolute value* of the negative fraction - just like the difference between a positive and negative number. * The absolute value of a number is the value of the number ignoring any minus sign; eg abs(-4) = 4 = abs(4). If you mean the difference in terms of where they are on the number line, then the positive fraction is one side of zero (it is greater than zero) and the negative fraction is the other side of zero (it is less than zero).

No.

A proper fraction (or a negative fraction).

A fraction with a value of less than zero.

If the fraction is already positive, then it is also the absolute value. If the fraction is negative, just change the sign and it becomes the absolute value. Absolute value means the magnitude (value) of the fraction without any sign attribute.

The opposite of one third is negative one third. This is because the opposite of a positive fraction is a negative fraction with the same value.

Well, isn't that just a happy little question! To find the absolute value of an improper fraction, you simply ignore whether it's a proper fraction or not and focus on the number itself. You see, absolute value is like giving a big hug to a number, no matter if it's positive or negative. Just take away any negative sign and you'll have the absolute value, like a beautiful little treasure waiting to be discovered.

Suppose f is a negative fraction. Then |f| is the absolute value of the fraction - the value disregarding the sign. The number is graphed at a distance of |f| to the left of the origin, the zero point.

Yes, if either the number, or its multiple, are negative, or, a fraction. Of course, not both can be negative!!!

yes it is a negative fraction

Negative 29 as a fraction can be written as -29/1. This is because any integer can be expressed as the integer over 1. In this case, -29 is the numerator and 1 is the denominator, indicating that the value is negative and not a fraction in the traditional sense.
