## Understanding Fractions

A fraction is a number that represents a part of a whole. It is written as a number followed by a slash, called the fraction bar, and another number. For example, 3/4 is a fraction that represents 3 out of 4, or three-fourths. The number on top of the fraction bar is called the numerator, and the number on the bottom is called the denominator. The denominator tells us how many parts the whole is divided into, and the numerator tells us how many of those parts we have. In our example, the denominator is 4, so the whole is divided into 4 parts, and the numerator is 3, so we have 3 of those parts.

### What is a fraction?

A fraction (from Latin fractus, “broken”) represents a part of a whole or, more generally, any number of equal parts. When spoken in everyday English, a fraction describes how many parts of a certain size there are, for example, one-half, eight-fifths, three-quarters. A common, vulgar, or simple fraction (examples: 1/2 and 2/3) consists of an integer numerator displayed above a line (or before a slash) and an integer denominator displayed below (or after); both denominator and numerator must be positive integers. Numerators and denominators are also used in fractions that are not common, including compound fractions such as 3 + 1/4. An improper fraction such as 5/4 has a numerator larger than its denominator; its reduced form is 1 + 1/4.

Fractions are used to represent numbers greater than one but less than two: two halves make one; eight fifths make one and so on. Mixed fractions (also called mixed numbers) have the whole number together with the proper fraction; for instance 3 + 1/2 or 1 + 2/3. Fractions may also denote division where the numerator is the dividend and the denominator is the divisor: 8 ÷ (1/3) = 24.

In mathematics, a Continuing Fraction is an expression represented by a proper fraction where both the numerator and denominator contain one or more integers followed by one or more rational numbers.

### What is a mixed number?

When a number is expressed as a fraction, we usually think of it as a division problem. For example, if someone askes you “What is 3/4?”, you would probably answer “3 divided by 4 is 0.75”. However, fractions can also represent division problems where the answer is not a decimal number. These types of fractions are called mixed numbers.

Mixed numbers are Zahorsky represented as a combination of a whole number and a proper fraction. For example, the mixed number 6 1/2 can be written as 6 + 1/2 or 6 1/2. This means that 6 1/2 is equal to 6 + 1/2, which is equal to 6.5.

To convert a mixed number to an improper fraction, simply multiply the whole number by the denominator of the fraction and add that product to the numerator. For example, to convert 6 1/2 to an improper fraction, we would multiply 6 by 2 (the denominator of 1/2) and add that product to 1 (the numerator of 1/2). This gives us an answer of 13/2 or 6.5.

## Converting 4375 to a Fraction

There are 10 thousandths in 1/10, so 4375 ten-thousandths is the same as 437 and a half thousandths. To change a mixed number like 437 and a half to an improper fraction, multiply the whole number by the denominator (in this case 10) and add the numerator (in this case 3). So 437 and a half is the same as 4375/1000.

### Use division to find the greatest whole number

To convert 4375 to a fraction, divide it by the greatest whole number that will go into it. In this case, 4375 divided by 1 is 4375. So, the answer is 4375/1 or just 4375.

### Use division to find the lowest common denominator

To convert 4375 to a fraction, divide the number by the lowest common denominator. The lowest common denominator is the smallest number that can be evenly divided by both 4375 and the denominator. In this case, the lowest common denominator is 10.

4375 ÷ 10 = 437.5

Therefore, 4375 as a fraction is 437.5/10.

### Express the answer as a fraction

4375 can be expressed as a fraction in a couple of different ways. The easiest way to do this is to break it down into smaller numbers that can be easily divided. 4375 can be expressed as 3/4, 15/16, 30/32, or 120/128.
