FRACTIONS

# like a part of a unit

A fraction is a part of a whole

The top number tells how many slices you have and the bottom number tells how many slices the pizza was cut into.

We call the top number the **Numerator**, it is the number of parts you have.

We call the bottom number the **Denominator**, it is the number of parts the whole is divided into.

NOTE: You just have to remember those names!

(If you forget just think "Down"-ominator)
