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.
ii) Improper fraction:
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:
A fractions which have numerator as \(1\) and denominator as any positive integer are called as unit fractions.
In the upcoming exercises, we get a detail knowledge of these fractions.
