Theory:

In the previous chapter, we explored the fundamentals of fraction; now, we will learn the classification of the fractions.
 
Fractions can be classified into by major four parts:
  • Proper fraction
  • Improper fraction
  • Mixed fraction
  • Unit fraction
i) Proper fraction:
A fraction where the value of the denominator will be greater than the value of the numerator.
Example:
23,1213,5052
ii) Improper fraction:
A fraction where the value of the numerator will be greater than or equal to the value of the denominator.
Example:
76,21,11
iii) Mixed fraction:
A mixed fraction is a combination of a whole number and a proper fraction.
Example:
245,467,678
iv) Unit fraction:
A fractions which have numerator as \(1\) and denominator as any positive integer are called as unit fractions.
Example:
116,14,112
