The types of fractions are discussed here with examples.
A fraction whose numerator is less than the denominator, is called a proper fraction.
For example, ⁵/₁₉, ¹³/₂₁, ²/₁₅ etc. are proper fractions.
A fraction whose numerator is more than or equal to the denominator, is called an improper fraction.
For example, ¹³/₅, ⁴¹/₃₁, ¹⁹⁷/₁₀₇ etc. are improper fractions.
A combination of a whole number and a proper fraction is called a mixed fraction.
For example, 2³/₅, 7⁴/₁₅, 21⁶/₂₉ etc. are mixed fractions.
In the mixed fraction 3²/₅, 3 is the whole number and ²/₅ is the proper fraction with numerator 2 and denominator 5.
