Best Answer

The denominator is the bottom number. It represents how many parts the whole has been evenly split into. The numerator is the top number. It represents how many of those pieces we have.

For instance, if you have 3/5 of a cake. This shows the cake has been split into 5 pieces, of which you have 3.
