Fractions can represent parts of a group or parts of a whole. The terms that we use for fractions are the “numerator” and the “denominator.” The numerator is the number of parts that we have and the denominator is the total number of parts that make up the whole.

Let’s look at an example:

We have different shapes and we’ll divide each one of them into a number of equal parts, which is the denominator.

The number of colored parts is the numerator.
