Fraction
s  A fraction is a part of a whole.

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

You just have to remember those names! (If you forget just think "Down"ominator)
