Carnegie C1M1T2

Carnegie Rational Numbers - Fractions

fraction Represents a part of a whole object, set, or unit. Written using two whole numbers separated by a bar.
numerator The number above the fraction bar. It indicates how many parts in the whole are counted.
denominator The number below the fraction bar. It indicates how many parts make up the whole.
unit fraction This has a numerator of 1 and a denominator that is a positive integer greater than 1.
equivalent fractions These represent the same whole
benchmark fractions Common ones that are used to estimate how much others are. An example is 1/2.
inequality Any mathematical sentence that shows a comparison.
simplest form A way of writing a fraction so that the numerator and the denominator have no common factors other than 1.
Multiplicative Identity Property This states that a X 1 = a, where a is a nonzero number.
common denominator a whole number that is a common multiple of the denominators of two or more fractions.
least common denominator (LCD) The least common multiple of the denominators of two or more fractions.
mixed number This has a whole number part and a fraction part.
improper fraction A fraction in which the numerator is greater than or equal to the denominator.
reciprocal This is also known as the multiplicative inverse of the number.
Multiplicative Inverse Property This states that a/b X b/a = 1, where a and b are nonzero numbers.
multiplicative inverse This means that for the fraction a/b this would be b/a, where a and b are nonzero numbers. The product of these two fractions is 1.
