# A fraction is given.How will you decide by just looking at it whether the fraction is 1- less than 1? 2- equal to 1?

Dear Student,

1 ) When numerator of any fraction is smaller than the denominator , then that fraction is less than 1

for example :

$\frac{99}{100}$ , Here numerator = 99  and denominator = 100  and we know 99 < 100  , So that fraction will be less than 1 .

for verification :

$\frac{99}{100}$ = 0.99  and  0.99 < 1   ( Verified )

2 ) When numerator of any fraction is equal to the denominator , then that fraction is equal to 1

for example :

$\frac{939}{939}$ , Here numerator = 939  and denominator = 939 and we know 939 = 939  , So that fraction will be equal to 1 .

for verification :

$\frac{939}{939}$ = 1   ( Verified )
