In previous chapter, we explored the fundamentals of fraction, now we will learn the classification of fractions.
Fractions can be classified into by major four parts:
- Proper fraction
- Improper fraction
- Mixed fraction
- Unit fraction
i) Proper fraction:
A proper fraction is a fraction where the value of the denominator will be greater than the value of the numerator.
ii) Improper fraction:
An Improper fraction is a fraction where the value of the numerator will be greater than or equal to the value of the denominator.
iii) Mixed fraction:
A mixed fraction is a combination of a whole number and a proper fraction.
iv) Unit fraction:
Fractions which has numerator as \(1\) and denominator as any positive integer are unit fractions.
