The fraction is the part of the whole. For instance the red color is shaded in 2 parts out of total 8 parts. Hence fraction of red color shaded is 2/8 = 1/4 .
The fraction has a numerator and denominator. For instance in the fraction 2/9, 2 is numerator and 9 is denominator.
The proper fractions are the fractions in which numerator is less than the denominator. For instance 4/15 is a proper fraction.
The improper fraction are the fraction in which numerator is more than the denominator. 12/7 is a improper fraction.
Equivalent fractions are fractions that look different but show exactly the same amount. For example 1/2 and 4/8.
It is usually best to show an answer using the simplest fraction ( 1/2 in this case ). That is called Simplifying, or Reducing the Fraction
To find an equivalent fraction, multiply or divide the numerator and denominator by the same number. For instance if the fraction 3/5 is multiplied by 4, it would be 12/20.
The fraction expressed in points is decimals. For instance, the fraction 1/4, when expressed in decimal becomes 0.25. The fraction 1/4, when converted converted into percentage becomes 1/4 X 100 = 25%.
A Decimal Number (based on the number 10) contains a Decimal Point.
Every fraction can be written in decimals, percentage and vice versa.
Every decimal can be written as a fraction.
Example : Lets take a decimal 0.30. To convert it into fraction we have to multiply the decimal by 10 for every number after the decimal point and then divide by the same number.
For example to convert 0.30 into fraction we have to multiply it by 10, that is 0.3 X 10 = 3. Then divide it by 10, that is 3/10.
If the decimal 0.03 is to be converted into fraction, then we have to multiply it by 100, and then divide by 100 ( 3/100 ).
Any two decimal numbers can be compared among themselves.
