# Types of Fraction Mean in Math

The primary parts of a fraction are the numerator and the denominator. Based on these, distinct types of fractions can be explained.

**Unit fractions**- Proper fractions
- Improper fractions
- Mixed fractions
**Like fractions**- Unlike fractions
- Equivalent fractions

**What is a unit fraction?**

In math, a unit fraction can be defined fraction with a nominator being one (1).

For example:

1/3,1/5,1/8

*The product of two unit fractions is the result of a unit fraction.*

**For example: **Find the product of two unit fraction

Solution:

Let two unit fractions 1/4 and 1/3

(1/4)X(1/3)=1/12

1/12 is called a unit fraction

**What is a Proper fraction?**

A fraction in which the numerator (the top number) is less than the denominator the bottom number).

**For example:**

3/7,4/5,2/9

**What is an Improper fraction?**

A fraction in which the nominator is greater or equal to the denominator.

For example:

3/2,5/2

4/4 ,7/7

**Mixed fraction**

A mixed fraction consists of a whole number along with a proper fraction

**For example**

71/4

**What is a lick fraction?**

The fraction in which the same denominator

**For example:**

2/5,3/5

**What is an unlick fraction?**

a fraction in which the different denominator

**For example:**

3/7 and 5/4

## What are** Equivalent fractions?**

Two or more fractions are defined to be equivalent fractions they are equal to the same fraction when simplified.

** For example,**

Both 6/12 and 4/8 are equal to 1/2,

When simplified, which means they are equivalent in nature.

**Mixed fraction into an improper fraction**

Mixed fractions can be converted to improper fractions. The denominator multiplies the whole number by adding it to the numerator. It becomes the new numerator and the denominator remains unchanged.

**For example:**

5(2/3)=5×3+2/3=15+2/3=17/3
