What is fraction?
A fraction is a numerical quantity that is not a whole number e.g. ½ etc.
In daily life fraction is a part or portion of something e.g. half portion of a pizza is equal to ½ of 1 pizza.
So numbers that are part of 1 are called fractions e.g. half of 1, quarter of 1, one third, one eighths, one hundredths and one millionths.
In mathematics these fractions are written
• Half of 1 =1/2. (It makes the half part of 1).
• Quarter of 1 =1/4. (It makes the 4th part of 1).

So
½ means 1 out of 2.
¼ means 1 out of 4.
