Numerator facts for kids
In math, the top part of a fraction is called the numerator. If the line part of the fraction is flat, the numerator is on top. If the line part of the fraction is at a slant, the numerator is on the left. The lower part is called the denominator of the fraction. For example:

 In ^{3}⁄_{4} the numerator is "3".
 In 23 the numerator is "76". ^{76}⁄_{100}
 In ^{(15+6)}⁄_{(35+7)} the numerator is "(15+6)".
 In (a + b) / 6c, the numerator is "(a + b)".
The numerator can be any real number, including zero. A proper fraction is where the top number is smaller than the bottom number. If the numerator is larger than the denominator, then it is called an improper fraction.en:Numerator
