Subtract the smaller fraction from the larger one.

No because the smallest fraction depeneds on how many parts you have for instance if the denominator is larger the fraction is smaller

You can't unless the numerators are equal. In that case, the fraction with the larger denominator is smaller.

The only generalisation posible is that it will always be a rational number. The product can be positive or negative; it can be a fraction or an integer, it can be larger or smaller.

Then the fraction with the smaller denominator is larger.

No, because there is an infinite number of possibilities smaller from the larger gives

yes. if the numerator is larger than the denominator it is an IMPROPER fraction.

8/20-15/20=7/20

If the fractions have the same numerator (top number), then the fraction with the larger denominator (bottom number) is the smaller fraction, which implies that the fraction with the smaller denominator is the larger fraction. For example with 1/2 and 1/4, it can be easily seen that 1/2 is the larger of the two.

No, a proper fraction has a numerator smaller than the denominator.
