# Fractions (F)

Fractions are all about splitting up a whole item into smaller, equal size parts. If you have completed the quizzes on Decimals or Percentages then you will already have come across two types of fractions. This GCSE Maths quiz will test how well you deal with the third type, common fractions.

A common fraction has two parts to it – the denominator, or bottom number, tells you how many equal parts one whole unit is split into. The numerator, or top number, indicates how many parts you have. A horizontal fraction bar is used to separate the numerator from the denominator – don’t be tempted to use the / symbol, as this can lead to mistakes when working with fractions.

There are four techniques you should be able to apply to fractions.
