### Identification of the Elements of a Fraction | Fractional Numbers

We are going to focus on right here in regards to the identification of the components
of a fraction. We all know fraction means a part of one thing. Fraction tells us,
into what number of components an entire has been divided and the half which is taken into account
out of the entire.

We additionally know that the numbers 0, 1, 2, 3, ……….. are referred to as entire numbers and the numbers ½, 1/3, ¼, 1/5, 1/6, ……….. are referred to as fractional numbers.

Every of the fractional quantity has two numbers separated by a ‘-‘ (sprint) referred to as the bar which suggests divided.

The quantity above the bar is known as the numerator. It tells us as to what number of components have been thought of
out of the entire equally divided components.

The quantity beneath the bar is known as the denominator. It describes us as in what number of components an entire has been
divided.

This rectangle which is taken into account as an entire.

It’s divided into 8 components. This 8 represents the
denominator of a fraction.

Three components are shaded. This 3 represents the numerator.

So, the fraction of the shaded half is 3/8.

Due to this fact,
fraction of the unshaded components is 5/8. Right here 5 is the numerator and eight is the
denominator within the fraction.

 On this determine, a circle is split into 8 equal components and seven components are shaded. The shaded half represents seven eighths of the circle. In symbols, we write it as (frac{7}{8}) Seven-eighths is known as a fractional quantity. (frac{7}{8}) is known as a fraction. The unshaded half represents one-eighths of the circle. In symbols, we write it as 1/8
