A fraction is how many parts of a whole we have. A slash placed between two numbers represent the fraction; the upper one is called the numerator, and the number after the slash is called the denominator. It can be written as a slanted slash or a horizontal line. In the proper fraction, the numerator is less than the denominator ( 3/4 ).

On the other hand, in the improper fraction, the numerator is greater than the denominator (4/3).

The simple fraction is a fraction in which both values of the numerator and denominator are complete (whole) numbers it is also known as the common fraction.
