(i) As a part of a whole

(ii) As a part of a collection

(iii) As division


2. A fraction having numerator 1 is called a unit fraction.

10. A fraction is said to be a fraction in its lower terms, if the HCF of a and b is 1. 

11. To reduce a given fraction to its simplest form, we divide both its numerator and denominator by their HCF.
