What is difference between rational number and fraction

Fraction Number :- A fraction is a number that express a part of the whole number as the quotient of integers where the denominator is not zero. another way to say that a fraction is a division expression where both dividend and divisor are integers and divisor is not zero.
Example :- 3/5, 8/4, 9/6...etc. is the fraction number. It means it can be negative or positive both but not zero

Rational Number :- A rational number is a number that can be expressed as a quotient of integers or as a repeating or terminating decimal. Every fraction fit the first part of the definition. therefore every fraction is a rational number but not every rational number is a fraction.

Example :- 4=8/2 or 1=3/3 is a rational number but 4 is not a fraction
number.

The main difference between a rational number and fraction is that fraction are always positive as they are part of whole and rational numbers can be positive or negitive.

  • Rational number can be negative. Fractions cannot.
  • All fractions are rational numbers. eg 2/3 is both fraction & rational
  • All rationals may not be fractions. eg. -4/5 is not a fraction but a rational
  • 73

every fraction is a rational number,but every rational number need not be a fraction 

eg -4/7, 0/3

are not fraction as fraction are part of a whole which are always positive

every fraction is rational no. but every rational no is not a fraction as 1/9 is afraction as well as rational no. but -1/9 is not a fraction.

thumbs up please!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

EVERY FRACTION IS A RATIONAL NO. , BUT EVERY RATIONAL NO. IS NOT A FRACTION......

EVERY INTEGER IS A RATIONAL NO. , BUTEVERY RATIONAL NO. IA NOT A INTEGER ........

HOPE YOU GOT IT!!!???!!!

Most of u have already given correct answer!

but nivedhita, for ue kind information there are integers which are not rational numbers.

for ecample, u cannot take out square root of -3 so its an imaginary number!

Faction has only positive sign and rational numbers can have positive or negative sign.Rational number can have negative sign.Every fraction is rational number.

A fraction is a number representing a part of a whole while a rational number is any number that can be expressed as the quotient or fraction p/q of two integers, with the denominator q not equal to zero.
