# NCERT Solutions for Class 6 Math Chapter 7: Fractions This chapter introduces a vital topic of mathematics, i.e., fraction to the students of class 6. A fraction is a number representing a portion of a number or complete portion. We have learned about the number line in chapter 2 whole numbers. It was said earlier to understand the number line for it will be used extensively in fractions. Fractions can be indicated on a number line. Every fraction has a place associated with it on the number line. Fraction has two parts numerator and denominator. Depending on the value of the numerator and denominator fractions can be of two types, i.e., proper fraction and improper fractions. With context to a proper fraction, the numerator is less than the denominator. The fractions, where the numerator is greater than the denominator, are called improper fractions. Improper fractions can further be represented in mixed fraction. An improper fraction can be written as a combination of a whole and a part of a number, and such fraction then called mixed fractions.
