Any number in from of p/q q=(not zero) which is called as fraction. if we are going in depth fraction has numerator and denominator so p is numerator and q is denominator.

if we are looking to here that p=5 and q =6 so in fraction form we can write like 5/6.

A fraction is known as in its simples from if HCF of numerator and denominator is 1.

## What is fraction

So if we define fraction it would be like any number in the from of p/q is called fraction in mathematics .

### Types of fraction

There many type of fraction available in mathematics as

**Proper fractions:** if any fraction would be like in from p/q where p is less then q then fraction is known as proper fractions

**Ex: 2/11, 13/20, 23/43**

**Improper fraction: **if any fraction like p/q where p is greater then q then the fraction is known as improper fraction

**ex:** 21/7,15/13,1714

**Mixed fraction: **a fraction which is formed with an integer and fraction is known as mixed fraction. Where we can convert mixed fraction in from of improper fraction.

**Like fractions :** Those fractions has numerator same which is called like fraction

**ex:12/1,12/13**

**Unlike fractions**: Those fractions has denominator different which is called like fraction ex:

**ex:19/12,20/23 **

we are hoping that you get all idea bout what is fraction and its type in details manner.
