To answer this questions, I will use an example. 3/4 is less than 1, right? 3/4 means three quarters, or three out of four possible. 4/4 would be four quarters, or four out of four possible. 5/4 would be equal to one, PLUS another fourth, because 4/4 is one, so one more fourth would be one and one quarter. BUT, that is just one way to make a fraction greater than one. Another type of a fraction greater than one is called a mixed number. So, instead of 5/4, you would say 1 1/4. This means one and one fourth, just like

5/4. They are just two different ways to say the same thing.

BTW: one quarter and one fourth are the same thing.
