### Fractions Class 6 Notes Conceptual Facts

1. A fraction is a part of a whole number having numerator and denominator.

For example: \(\frac{5}{7}\) where 5 is numerator and 7 is the denominator.

2. Representation of a fraction on a number line.

For example: \(\frac{2}{3}\)

3. Proper fractions: Numerator is less than the denominator.

For example: \(\frac{2}{3}, \frac{5}{8} \text { and } \frac{1}{5}\)

4. Improper fractions: Numerator is bigger than the denominator.

For example: \(\frac{5}{2}, \frac{7}{5}, \frac{10}{3} \text { and } \frac{6}{5}\)

5. Mixed fractions: It is represented by Quotient \(\frac{\text { Remainder }}{\text { Divisor }}\)

For example: \(5 \frac{1}{7}, 3 \frac{2}{3} \text { and } 4 \frac{5}{7}\)

6. Equivalent fractions: Two or more fractions are said to be equivalent fractions, if they represent the same quantity.

For example: \(\frac{2}{5}, \frac{6}{15}, \frac{4}{10} \text { and } \frac{8}{20}\)

7. Simplest form of a fraction: A fraction is said to be simple if numerator and the denominator have no common factor except 1.

For example: Simplest form of \(\frac{15}{20} \text { is } \frac{3}{4}\)

8. Like fractions: Two or more fractions having same denominators are called like fractions.

For example: \(\frac{2}{5}, \frac{3}{5}, \frac{4}{5}, \frac{6}{5}\)

9. Unlike fractions: Two or more fractions having different denominators are called unlike fractions.

For example: \(\frac{8}{9}, \frac{5}{7}, \frac{6}{5}, \frac{7}{10}\)
