Fractions have their own special vocabulary and a few important properties that are worth knowing right from the start. When you know them, you find working with fractions a lot easier.

Telling the numerator from the denominator

The top number in a fraction is called the numerator, and the bottom number is called the denominator. For example, look at the following fraction:

3/4

In this example, the number 3 is the numerator, and the number 4 is the denominator. Similarly, look at this fraction:

55/89

The number 55 is the numerator, and the number 89 is the denominator.

Flipping for reciprocals

When you flip a fraction over, you get its reciprocal. For example, the following numbers are reciprocals:

2/3 is the reciprocal of 3/2.

11/14 is the reciprocal of 14/11

 

Using ones and zeros

When the denominator (bottom number) of a fraction is 1, the fraction is equal to the numerator by itself. Or conversely, you can turn any whole number into a fraction by drawing a line and placing the number 1 under it. For example,

2/1 = 2

9/1 = 9

157/1 = 157

When the numerator and denominator match, the fraction equals 1. Here are some fractions that equal 1:

8/8 = 1

11/11 = 1

When the numerator of a fraction is 0, the fraction is equal to 0. For example,

0/1=0

0/12=0

0/130=0
