The fractions can be classified in to four types like fractions, unlike fractions, Proper fraction & improper fraction. This differentiation is vital in various mathematical operations.

fractions having the same denominator are called as like fraction. For example, 2/4 and 3/4 are like fractions as the denominator 4 is same for both the fractions.

fractions having different denominators are called unlike fraction. For example, 3/4 and 1/7 are unlike-fractions as the denominator differs for both the fractions.

fractions having denominator greater than the numerator is called proper fraction. For example, 2/5 & 9/13 are proper fractions as the denominator is grater than numerator

fractions having numerator lesser than the denominator is called improper fraction. For example, 5/3 & 9/4 are improper fraction as the numerator is greater than denominator
