The answer is the numerator.

You will get an equivalent fraction. However, if the numerator and the denominator of a fraction by zero, the result is not defined.

It is a complex fraction.

The numerator is the top line , it tells you how many of the fraction you have (enumerates it, if you like). The bottom is the denominator, it tells you what kind of fraction it is (what denomination it is).

An improper number is when the numerator is larger than the denominator which is named a improper fraction.

It is a complex fraction.

All fractions have that.

The numerator is the top line , it tells you how many of the fraction you have (enumerates it, if you like). The bottom is the denominator, it tells you what kind of fraction it is (what denomination it is).

An improper number is when the numerator is larger than the denominator which is named a improper fraction.

An improper fraction has a numerator equal to or greater than the denominator. A mixed number is a combination of a whole number and a proper fraction. I'm not sure what a mixed improper fraction is. Whatever. To reduce any kind of fraction to its simplest form, find the GCF of the numerator and denominator. If the GCF is 1, the fraction is already in its simplest form. If not, divide the numerator and the denominator by the GCF. The result will be the simplest form.

The result (which should be simplified) is another fraction of some kind: * a proper (or vulgar fraction) with the numerator (top number) less than the denominator (bottom number); * an improper fraction with the numerator greater than the denominator which can be converted into a mixed number; or * an integer (whole number).

In a proper fraction, the absolute value of the numerator must be smaller than the absolute value of the denominator.

Any kind of fraction becomes decimal notation if you divide the denominator into the numerator. Any decimal notation becomes a percent if you multiply it by 100.

Common fractions whereas the numerator is less then the denominator as in 3/4 Improper fractions whereas the numerator is greater than the denominator as in 5/2 Equivalent fractions have equal values as in 3/4 = 6/8 and 5/2 = 10/4
