numerator/denominator =

A mixed number is made up of a whole number (whole numbers have no fractional or decimal part) and a proper fraction part (a fraction where the numerator (the top number) is less than the denominator (the bottom number). In this case the whole number value is ** empty** and the proper fraction value is

Not all decimals can be converted into a fraction. There are 3 basic types which include:

**Terminating** decimals have a limited number of digits after the decimal point.

Example:
**
8488.6048 = 8488 ^{6048}/_{10000}
**

**Recurring** decimals have one or more repeating numbers after the decimal point which continue on infinitely.

Example:
**
8847.3333 = 8847 ^{3333}/_{10000} = ^{333}/_{1000} = ^{33}/_{100} = ^{1}/_{3}** (rounded)

**Irrational** decimals go on forever and never form a repeating pattern. This type of decimal cannot be expressed as a fraction.

Example: **0.146157957.....**
