À PROPER FRACTION is one in which the numerator is less than the denominator. The value of every proper fraction is less than 1. (See ART. 109.) The following are proper fractions: }, }, }, , , , , , 111. An IMPROPER FRACTION is one in which the nu. merator is equal to, or exceeds the denominator. Such fractions are called improper fractions because they are equal to, or exceed unity. When the numerator is equal to the denominator, the value of the fraction is 1; in every other case the value of an improper fraction is greater than 1. The following are improper fractions : , , , , , , , 4. 112. A SIMPLE FRACTION is a single expression. A simple fraction may be either proper or improper. The following are simple fractions : ,,,号,号,曼,曼, 113. A COMPOUND FRACTION is a fraction of a fraction, or several fractions connected together with the word of between them. The following are compound fractions : 1 of }, { of ļof , ļof 3, of į of 4. 114. A MIXED FRACTION is made up of a whole number and a fraction. The whole numbers are sometimes called integers. 6 8 9 12 6 9 8 they? 110. How many kinds of Vulgar Fractions are there? What aro What is a proper fraction ? Is its value greater or less than 1? 111. What is an improper fraction ? Why is it called improper ? When is its value equal to 1 ? 112. What is a simple fraction? May it be either proper or im. proper ? 113. What is a compound fraction? 114. What is a mixed fraction ? а The following are mixed fractions : 31, 41, 63, 53, 65, 31. 115. A COMPLEX FRACTION is one having a fractional numerator or denominator. The following are complex fractions : 를 2 45} 5' 191' 691 116. The numerator and denominator of a fraction, taken together, are called the terms of the fraction. Hence, every fraction has two terms. 117. A whole number may be expressed fractionally by writing 1 below it for a denominator. Thus, 3 may be written i and is read, 3 ones. 5 ones. 6 ones. 8 8 ones. But 3 ones are equal to 3, 5 ones to 5, 6 ones to 6, and 8 ones to 8. Hence, the value of a number is not changed by placing 1 under it for a denominator. 118. If an apple be divided into 6 equal parts, I will express one of the parts, two of the parts, &c., and generally, the denominator shows into how many a a &C., &C., 115. What is a complex fraction? Give an example of a proper fraction. Of an improper fraction. Of a simple fraction. Of a com. pound fraction. Of a mixed fraction. Is four-ninths a proper or improper fraction? What kind of a fraction is six-thirds ? What is its value? What kind of a fraction is nine-eighths ? What is its value? What kind of a fraction is one-half of a third?
