Q1. What is a fraction according to Chapter 7 of Class 6 Maths?

A fraction can be defined as a part of the whole number. This Is expressed as the ratio of two integers. The upper part is the numerator and the below is the denominator. Fraction is an important chapter and students should study with proper focus and attention. There will be numerous sums connected with this chapter so the proper understanding of the concept is very important. The detailed explanation can be referred to in Vedantu from NCERT solutions.

Q2. What are the topics covered in Chapter 7 of Class 6 Maths?

The topics are different types of a fraction like a proper fraction, improper fraction, mixed fraction, conversion of the mixed fraction to an improper fraction, conversion of the improper fraction to mixed fraction, representation of fraction on a number line, the simplest form of fractions, equivalent fractions, like and unlike fractions, comparison of fractions, addition and subtraction of fractions. These are the fundamentals of fractions and should be thorough with basic topics.

Q3. Define proper, improper and mixed fractions.

Proper fraction can be defined as the fraction where the numerator is less than the denominator. The fraction will always be less than one.

An improper fraction is defined as the fraction where the numerator is more than the denominator and the fraction will be more than one.

A mixed fraction is a combination of proper and improper fractions. These definitions are important and students should know the difference between different types of fractions and their conversions.

These solutions are available on Vedantu's official website(vedantu.com) and mobile app free of cost.

Q4. How do you add the fraction?

There is a procedure to add the fraction. Adding like fractions becomes easy as the denominator is the same for both the fractions. For example 1/7+2/7=3/7. It is very simple: you need to just add the numerator as the denominator is the same.

When you are adding unlike fractions then the denominator will be different. The first step is to make the fractions like fractions, which means, we have to make the denominator the same.

The, unlike fractions, is converted to like fractions by taking the LCM of the denominators. Once the fractions are like fractions then the addition is easy.

Q5. How do you subtract the fractions?

Subtraction of like fractions is easy. As we have done in the case of addiction we have to now just subtract the numerators in like fractions. Example 3/5-1/5=2/5

But in the case of unlike fractions, the procedure is not the same as the denominators are different; we cannot simply subtract the numerators. Next, We have to convert unlike fractions to like fractions. The, unlike fractions, should be changed to like fractions by taking the LCM of the denominators. Once the fractions are like fractions then subtract the numerators.
