# Fractions (Very Easy)

**A fraction is a number that is not a whole number.** It is written as one number divided another number, e.g. ¾. The top number, 3, is called the numerator and the bottom number, 4, is called the denominator: the denominator can NEVER be zero.

Fractions are read as follows: ⅜ is read as 'three eighths'. The numerator is read as an ordinary counting number, BUT the denominator is read as an ordinal number: third(s), fourth(s), fifth(s) and so on.

Fractions can have a strange effect on some people and they find using decimals preferable. Whatever your preference, it's definitely worth taking some time to play our 11-plus Maths quizzes about fractions. This will give you a basic understanding of these funny-looking numbers!
