A fraction with a numerator that is smaller than its denominator is less than one.

The numberator does not have to be less than or equal to the denominator in a fraction.If the numerator is less than the denominator, it is a "proper" fraction.If the numerator is equal to the denominator, it is the integer 1.But the numerator can be bigger than the denominator, and it is then called an improper fraction.

Yes But then you would have to divide the denominator into the numerator and get a mixed number ,then simply 6:4

the fraction is said to be improper.

mixed fraction

there is nothing to do its a proper fraction

It is anImproper fraction,ONLY if the numerator is bigger than the denominator, and if the numerator and denominator are the same it is a whole number.example of an improper fraction: 5/3example of a whole number: 7/7

if the numerator is bigger then the denominator it is called an improper fraction so you have to divide to get your regular fraction.

You do them the same way as you "do" other fractions.

yes it could be

That's an improper fraction.

Yes, it can be. If the numerator is 0. Then suppose the denominator is 3, which is bigger than 0 (double the numerator). So the value of the fraction is 0/3 = 0.
