  • Slice a pizza, and you will have fractions:

  • The top number tells how many slices you have
  • The bottom number tells how many slices the pizza was cut into.
  • Numerator / Denominator

  • We call the top number the Numerator, it is the number of parts you have.

  • We call the bottom number the Denominator, it is the number of parts the whole is divided into.
You just have to remember those names! (If you forget just think "Down"-ominator)
