CBSE Class 6th ( VI) Mathematics Chapter 7. Fractions: Exercise 7.2 Solutions
 Proper Fraction :
 A proper fraction is a number representing part of a whole.
 In a proper fraction the denominator shows the number of parts into which the whole is divided and the numerator shows the
number of parts we have taken out.
 In a proper fraction the numeratoris always less than the denominator.
 On a number line, all these fractions lie to the left of 1as they are less than 1.For Examples
1   2   3   5   7  
 , 
 , 
 , 
 , 
 
4   6   9   10   12  
are all proper fractions
 Improper Fraction :
 The fractions, where the numerator is bigger than the denominator are called
improper Factions. For Examples
3   7   12   18   27  
 , 
 , 
 , 
 , 
 
2   3   7   5   8  
are all improper fractions
 Mixed Fraction :
 A mixed fraction has a combination of a whole and a part.For example :

2. Express the following as mixed fractions :
Answer: We know that where the numerator is bigger than the denominator are called improper Factions and a mixed fraction has a combination of a whole and a part A improper fraction can be expressed as mixed fraction.
3. Express the following as improper fractions :
Answer: A mixed fraction has a combination of a whole and a part and where the numerator is bigger than the denominator are called improper Factions. A mixed fraction can be expressed as improper fraction.
