A fraction is a portion or part of a whole.

A fraction is in form of  $$\frac {a}{b}$$

Proper Fraction: In a proper fraction, the numerator is less than the denominator. e.g $$\frac {3}{7},\frac {1}{2},\frac {6}{10}$$

Improper Fractions: In an improper fraction, the numerator is greater than the denominator. e.g  $$\frac {5}{3},\frac {3}{2}$$

Mixed Fraction: A mixed number consists of two parts – a whole number and a proper fraction.

Equivalent Fraction: Fractions that have the same value are said to be equivalent.

You will observe that the amount of the shaded area (semi-circle) is the same.

i.e. $$\frac {1}{2}= \frac {2}{4} = \frac {3}{6}= \frac {4}{8}$$

These are all equivalent fractions
