### 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: $$\frac{8}{9}, \frac{5}{7}, \frac{6}{5}, \frac{7}{10}$$
