About Fraction Definition:

In our everyday life we are bombarded with fractions. Whenever we open a pizza box and share among family and friends we each get a part of a whole amount. Let’s suppose there is a pizza split into four equal slices, if you and three friends each get one slice of pizza, then each person gets one-fourth of the pizza.
