*Proper fraction

*The types of fractions are discussed here with examples.*

**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**.

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.
