Solution

## The correct option is B A number set written like a division problem A fraction (from Latin: fractus, "broken") represents a part of a whole. A fraction is a number that represents a part of a whole or a part of a group. If we picture a cake, the denominator tells us how many total slices the cake has been cut into and the numerator tells us how many of those slices we can have or we are talking about. When we represent it numerically , it is number written like a division problem. For example: In a group of 10 people with 3 men and 7 women, the fraction of women is 710. The fraction of men is 310. The denominator will always be 10 because the whole group consists of 10 people.
