# Fractions

TermDefinition
Common Factor A factor that is shared by two or more whole numbers. Example: 2 is a common factor of 8 and 10.
Denominator The number below the fraction bar in a fraction. Example: In the fraction 2/5 the denominator is 5.
Equivalent Fractions Fractions that represent the same number. Example: 2/9 and 4/18 are equivalent fractions that both represent 1/2.
Factor When whole numbers other than zero are multiplied together, each number is a factor of the product. Example: 2 X 3 X 4 = 24, so 2, 3, and 4 are factors of 24.
Fraction A number in the form a/b, where b ≠ 0. Example: 1/5, 2/9
Greatest Common Factor (GCF) The largest of the common factors of two or more nonzero whole numbers. Example: The common factors of 12 and 20 are 1, 2, and 4. So the GCF of 12 and 20 is 4.
Improper Fraction A fraction in which the numerator is greater than or equal to the denominator. Example: 5/4, 9/9
Least Common Denominator (LCD) The least common multiple of the denominators of two or more fractions. Example: The least common denominator of 3/4 and 5/6 is the least common multiple of 4 and 6, or 12.
Least Common Multiple (LCM) The smallest of the common multiples of two or more nonzero whole numbers. Example: Multiples of 10: 10, 20, 30, 40, … Multiples of 15: 15, 30, 45, 60, … The least common multiple of 10 and 15 is 30.
Mixed Number A number that has a whole number part and a fraction part. Example: 3 1/2 , 6 2/3
Numerator The number above the fraction bar in a fraction. Example: In the fraction 2/5, the numerator is 2
Simplest Form of a Fraction A fraction is in simplest form if its numerator and denominator have a greatest common factor (GCF) of 1. Example: The simplest form of the fraction 10/15 is 2/3
Reciprocals Two numbers whose product is 1. Example: Because 4/5 X 5/4 = 1, 4/5 and 5/4 are reciprocals.
Product The result when two or more numbers are multiplied. Example: The product of 4 and 3 is 4 X 3, or 12.
Quotient The result of a division. Example: The quotient of 10 and 5 is 10 ÷ 5, or 2.

Use these flashcards to help memorize information. Look at the large card and try to recall what is on the other side. Then click the card to flip it. If you knew the answer, click the green Know box. Otherwise, click the red Don't know box.

When you've placed seven or more cards in the Don't know box, click "retry" to try those cards again.

If you've accidentally put the card in the wrong box, just click on the card to take it out of the box.

You can also use your keyboard to move the cards as follows:

• SPACEBAR - flip the current card
• LEFT ARROW - move card to the Don't know pile
• RIGHT ARROW - move card to Know pile
• BACKSPACE - undo the previous action

If you are logged in to your account, this website will remember which cards you know and don't know so that they are in the same box the next time you log in.

When you need a break, try one of the other activities listed below the flashcards like Matching, Snowman, or Hungry Bug. Although it may feel like you're playing a game, your brain is still making more connections with the information to help you out.
