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
