**Fraction | What is Fraction?**

A number that compares part of an object with the whole
is called a

**fraction**. In other word, we can say the ratio of two numbers is a**fraction**, in which the upper part is the numerator and the lower part is a denominator. i.e.
In the above figure, 4 equal parts are shaded out of 7 equal
parts which represent 4/7 and unshaded parts 3/7. 4/7 and 3/7 are fractions. In
these fractions 3 and 4 are called numerators and 7 is called a denominator.
