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.
Improper Fraction
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.
Mixed Fraction
A combination of a whole number and a proper fraction is called a mixed fraction.
