Worksheet on Types of Fractions - Answers

Question 1 :

What is proper fraction ? Given an example.

The numerator of a fraction is smaller than the denominator, then the fraction is called as proper fraction.

Example : 2/3

Question 2 :

What is improper fraction ? Given an example.

The numerator of a fraction is larger than the denominator, then the fraction is called as improper fraction.

Example : 3/2

Question 3 :

What is mixed number or mixed fraction ? Given an example.

An integer and a proper fraction together is called a mixed number or mixed fraction.

Example : 5 2/3

Question 4 :

What is the difference between a proper fraction and improper fraction in value ?

The following is the difference between a proper fraction and an improper fraction in value.

Proper Fraction

The value of a proper fraction will always be smaller than 1.

Improper Fraction

The value of an improper fraction will be equal to 1 or larger than 1.

The picture shown below clearly illustrates this.

Question 5 :

What are like fractions ? Give an example.

In two or more fractions, the denominators (bottom numbers) are same, they are called as like fractions.

Example :

1/2, 3/2,  7/2,  9/2

In the above fractions, all the denominators are same. That is 2.

Question 6 :

What are unlike fractions ? Give an example.

In two or more fractions, the denominators (bottom numbers) are different, they are called as unlike fractions.

Example :

1/3,  4/5,  1/7,  9/11

In the above fractions, the denominators are different. They are 3, 5, 7 and 11.

Question 7 :

Classify the values given below as proper fraction, improper fraction and mixed fraction.

2/3, 5/2, 2 5/3, 7/8, 0.2, 1.3

2/3 -----> Proper fraction

5/2 -----> Improper fraction

2 5/3 -----> Mixed fraction

7/8 -----> Proper fraction

0.3  =  3/10 -----> Proper fraction

1.3  =  13/10 -----> Improper fraction
