  • The top number tells how many slices you have

  • 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.

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