# Grade 6 Math | Fraction VII (Adding Fractions)

fraction (from Latinfractus, “broken”) represents a part of a whole or, more generally, any number of equal parts. When spoken in everyday English, a fraction describes how many parts of a certain size there are, for example, one-half, eight-fifths, three-quarters. A commonvulgar, or simple fraction (examples : 1/2 and 17/3) consists of a numerator displayed above a line (or before a slash), and a non-zero denominator, displayed below (or after) that line. Numerators and denominators are also used in fractions that are not common, including compound fractions, complex fractions, and mixed numerals. wikipedia
