The numerator and denominator in both types of fractions are integers. In a proper fraction the numerator is smaller than the denominator while in an improper fraction the numerator is larger.

Without seeing the fractions in question it would be assumed that they would form equivalent fractions.

They could be fractions in which the numerator or the denominator, or both, are complex numbers.

In that case, and assuming both fractions are positive, the one with the larger denominator is the smaller fraction, because you are dividing by a larger number.

A complex fraction is a fraction where the numerator, denominator, or both contain a fraction. Example 1: is a complex fraction. The numerator is 3 and the denominator is 1/2.

"Regular" fractions have integers for the numerator and denominator. Complex fractions have fractions at one or both of those spots.

That means that there is a main fraction; the numerator, the denominator, or both, of it, are in turn fractions.

It is a compound fraction.

It is called a complex fraction.

To be called a complex fraction, either the numerator, the denominator, or both, are fractions (or contain fractions).

The numerator and denominator in both types of fractions are integers. In a proper fraction the numerator is smaller than the denominator while in an improper fraction the numerator is larger.

In standard fractions both numerator and denominator must be integers.

Then the fraction with the smaller denominator is larger.

Both proper and improper fractions have a numerator and a denominator. In a proper fraction the numerator is always less than the denominator. In an improper function the numerator is greater than the denominator

A complex fraction, just waiting to be simplified.

A complex fraction is one in which the numerator, denominator, or both contain a fraction.

That's a complex fraction.
