A rational number of the form a/b where is called the numerator and is called the denominator.

Fractions are simply ways of representing portions of whole quantities. Composed of a numerator and a denominator, they indicate how much of a certain object is being considered. 3/8 is a fraction indicating three portions out of eight total, or three eighths of a whole.

A common fraction is a representation of the quotient of two numbers such as 3/4, 1/2, 3/10. A quotient is the result of division. So 3/4 is the same as "three divided by four", and 1/2 is the same as "one divided by two"

A number used to name a part of a group or a whole. The number below the division line is the denominator, and the number above the division line is the numerator.

see rational number any number that can be written in the form a/b where a and b are integers and b cannot equal 0. It is a negative fraction number if it is less than zero i.e. either a or b, but not both, is negative.

A field in a floating-point data format that stores all but the leading bit of the significand of a floating-point number.

Representation of the quotient of two numbers, and , written in the form a/b where .

(1) A number in the form or a/b, where a and b are whole numbers and b is not 0. Fractions are used to name part of a whole object, part of a whole collection of objects, to compare two quantities, or as the quotient of a divided by b.

A way of writing numbers that are not whole numbers. The fraction is written like 1/2.

Representation of the quotient of two numbers, and , written in the form / where ¹ is not equal to zero).

In a floating-point representation, the bits that for normalized value s represent a value between 1.0 and 2.0 that is raised to a power of 2. See also exponent, sign bit.

a mathematical expression that states the ratio between two numbers

a mathematical way of expressing a value that is less than a whole unit or one

an expression representing a part or several equal parts of a unit

a number that is the portion

a pair of integers ( a , b ), commonly written as a / b

a relationship between a part and a whole

a representation of some number of those portions compared to the original amount of the whole

a single number in one sense, but to understand it we have to consider both numbers used to form it

a smaller number, written over a larger number separated by a line called a vinculum

a special kind of number that we use to talk about a quantity that is less than one, that is, where something is a portion of a whole

A fraction is any number that can be written in the form a/b with b zero.

Part of a share that cannot be distributed in the case of a bonus share allocution or subscription if the number of shares held is not a multiple of the transaction. Example: in a 1 for 8 bonus share allocation, a shareholder owning 100 shares is allocated 12 new shares and 4 fractions (i.e.,the equivalent of half a share).

comes from the Latin word frangere, to break. A fraction, then, representing the broken portion of some whole. The first known use of the word in English is by Geoffrey Chaucer in 1391 in the work, A Treatise on the Astrolabe.

Part of a fixed-point number represented by the bits to the right of the binary point. The fraction represents numbers that are less than one. See also binary point, bit, fixed-point representation

a number expressing the number of parts present in a situation, given the number of parts that make a whole. For example, the fraction representing 1 of 3 parts is A fraction can also be defined as a number of the form / where and are integers and

A fraction is an expression which consists of a numerator and a denominator. (See also quotient and ratio.) Examples: Fractions: , , , Numerators: , Denominators: , , (b, d, y When the denominator of a fraction is zero, the fraction is undefined. Equivalent Fractions: = = = is in the lowest terms among its equivalent fractions. Improper Fractions: , , 26, An improper fraction is a fraction with numerator denominator. It may be converted to a mixed number or a whole number: , , , Proper Fractions: , , , 11 24 A proper fraction is a fraction with numerator denominator. Complex Fractions: , , , 2 + 1 A complex fraction is a fraction whose numerator or denominator is also a fraction. It may be converted to a simple fraction: 10 12, , 45

A number that names a part of a whole or of a set.

any part of a whole is called a fraction (e.g., one-half written in fractional form is 1 ).

none Quantity Indicates that the number is actually a fraction. "actualDenominator" gives a clue to the denominator of the value (assume 1). If the value is intended to be displayed with a different denominator, "displayDenominator" provides this clue. "displayNumerator" specifies absolutely the fraction to be displayed.

symbol that expresses part of a whole and consists of a numerator and a denominator; for example, 3/5.

A number made up of two numbers,a numerator and denominator,the former divided by the latter.

A number that represents part of a whole, part of a set, or a quotient in the form a/bwhich can be read as a divided by b.

A number that represents some part of a whole and written a/b. So 1/2 means 1 of 2 parts, or one-half of something.

A number that represents a portion or whole. In the fraction 3/4, 3 is the numerator and 4 is the denominator, so the number indicates 3 parts out of a total of 4.

In mathematics, a fraction is a way of expressing a quantity based on an amount that is divided into a number of equal-sized parts. For example, each part of a cake split into four equal parts is called a quarter (and represented numerically as ); two quarters is one half of the cake, and eight quarters would make two cakes.

The Fraction is the ceremonial act of breaking the consecrated bread during the Eucharistic rite in some Christian denominations.

Fraction or parliamentary party is a term used to refer to the representation of a political party within a legislative assembly, a parliament but also a city council.
