Decimal fractions consist of both a whole number and a decimal fraction. A decimal fraction is a fraction with a denominator that has been divided into the numerator.
Equivalent fractions are fractions that have the same value as each other. In other words, 9/12 is equal to ¾. Equivalent fractions may look different, but they each have the same value.
Also called vulgar fractions or common fractions, these include fractions which are smaller than one but greater than zero.
