Before we get too far into the details of what the various parts of a fraction mean, let’s briefly review their anatomy. First, a fraction is made up of two integers—one on the top, and one on the bottom.. The top one is called the numerator, the bottom one is called the denominator, and these two numbers are separated by a line.
Only a fraction of you will get this. One interesting way I had this explained to me was using permutations. If you have 3 objects, let's call them A, B and C, there are 6 ways to arrange them, ABC, ACB, BAC, BCA, CAB, CBA, as 3! = 6
Numerator vs Denominator • The numerator is the top (the part above the stroke or the line) component of a fraction. • The denominator is the bottom (the part below the stroke or the line) component of the fraction. • The numerator can take any integer value while the denominator can take any integer value other than zero.
What would you call the line in a fraction? It is a horizontal line that is between the numerator and the denominator. Suggestions: vinculum solidus fraction line fraction bar fraction stroke *sh...
Although SOLIDUS is an acceptable word for the line. It refers more to the diagonal line (which could also be called the diagonal or virgule, by the way). When representing a fraction, we usually write it as a horizontal line. This horizontal bar separating the numerator and the denominator would be called VINCULUM.
Dividing the numerator and denominator of a fraction by the same non-zero number will also yield an equivalent fraction. If the numerator and the denominator of a fraction are both divisible by a number (called a factor) greater than 1, then the fraction can be reduced to an equal fraction with a smaller numerator and a smaller denominator.

Vinculum is a word used broadly to describe any horizontal line in mathematical symbols. The line between numerator and denominator, the line above the recurring decimal, etc are some examples of vincula. More commonly, the line is called a fraction or division bar.
Hey there. The phrase is actually a well thought and very well executed pun. Look at the picture given below. These are fractions. Lets consider ‘1/2′ . The number ‘1’ given above a line and the number ‘2’ is given below it. The number which is pl...
Here are the common names for the symbols of divison: fraction bar, divisor (though this may be somewhat misleading), slash (for vertical slashes like you mentioned), division bar and, of course, simply "the division sign". However, as is usual t...
