Question

# Is the given fraction is $\dfrac{3}{4}$ a proper fraction?

Hint: We can answer the given question by using the idea of types of fractions.

The given fraction is $\dfrac{3}{4}$.
Proper fraction: The number in the numerator is less than the number in the denominator.
Examples: $\dfrac{1}{3},\dfrac{2}{7},\dfrac{9}{{11}}$
If you observe the number in the numerator is less than the number in the denominator.
Hence we can say that $\dfrac{3}{4}$is a proper fraction.

Note: We can define three types of fractions.
Proper fraction: The number in the numerator is less than the number in the denominator.
Examples: $\dfrac{1}{3},\dfrac{2}{7},\dfrac{9}{{11}}$
Improper fraction: The number in the numerator is greater than or equal to the number in the denominator.
Examples: $\dfrac{2}{2},\dfrac{5}{2},\dfrac{7}{3}.$
Mixed fraction: A whole number and proper fraction together.
Examples: $5\dfrac{1}{5},2\dfrac{3}{8},7\dfrac{4}{9}$
So the given fraction $\dfrac{3}{4}$ is a proper function.
