## Fraction Greater than One, Less Than One and Equal to One

A fraction is said to be greater than one when the numerator is greater than the denominator. For example, the fraction 5/4 is greater than one because 5 is greater than 4. A fraction is said to be less than one when the numerator is less than the denominator. For example, the fraction 1/2 is less than one because 1 is less than 2. A fraction is said to be equal to one when the numerator and denominator are both equal. For example, the fraction 1/1 is equal to one.

## Types of Fractions:

There are three types of fractions: proper fractions, improper fractions, and mixed numbers.

A proper fraction is a fraction in which the numerator (top number) is smaller than the denominator (bottom number). For example, 1/4 is a proper fraction.

An improper fraction is a fraction in which the numerator is larger than the denominator. For example, 3/4 is an improper fraction.

A mixed number is a number that consists of a whole number and a fraction. For example, 2 1/4 is a mixed number.
