Any fraction where the numerator is larger than the denominator (improper fraction.) 3/2 can also be written as 1 1/2.

An improper fraction is a fraction where the top number, numerator, is larger than the bottom, denominator.1 2/3= 5/3

One seventh is larger than one eighth. The smaller the number under a 1 in a fraction, the larger that fraction is. Think 1/4, 1/3, 1/2 and you'll see the size of the fraction increasing; the numbers are becoming larger.

No. If you convert both to 15ths, 2/5 is 6/15, while 1/3 is 5/15. So 2/5 is larger. Another way to tell which fraction is larger is to cross-multiply. The fraction with the numerator which gives the larger product when multiplied by the other denominator is the larger one. So if you multiply the 2 from 2/5 with the 3 from 1/3, you get 6. If you multiply the 1 from 1/3 with the 5 from 2/5, you get five. So 6 is larger than 5, meaning that 2/5 is larger.

2/3

Yes. For example, 2/3 is greater than 1/3. After reducing to the GCD, the fraction with the larger numerator is the larger number.

The answer includes an infinite number of fractions, but the simple way to get a larger fraction is to increase the size of the numerator, or decrease the size of the denominator, so 3/7 is larger than 2/7, and 2/6 (which reduces to 1/3) is larger than 2/7.

3/2improper fraction for 1 and 1 half = 3/21 1/2:= [(2 * 1)+1]/2= [2+1]/2= 3/2 in improper fraction1 and a half as a improper fraction = 3/211/2:= [(2 * 1)+1]/2= [2+1]/2= 3/2 in improper fraction

One half. Put them into like denominators and you will see (1/2)* 3/3 = 3/6 vs (1/3)* 2/2 = 2/6. Three sixths is large than two sixths therefore one half is larger

No.

It depends on what you are doing with the fractions. Assuming that the entire fraction is the same sign as its numerator, if multiplied or divided, the answer would be negative. If the fraction is being added, it would depend upon which fraction is larger. The larger fraction will transfer its sign to the answer. When subtracted, it depends on which fraction is negative. Examples of multiplication: (1/2)x(-1/4)= -1/8 Division: (1/2)/(-1/4)= -2 Addition: (1/2)+(-1/4)= 1/4 Subtraction Ex. 1: (1/2)-(-1/4)= 3/4 Subtraction Ex. 2: (-1/2)-(1/4)= -3/4 Hope this helps you out.

fraction of a fraction means fraction times fraction. Note: of in Math means multiply Example: 1/2 of 1/3 = 1/2 x 1/3 = 1/6
