# Fraction

From Teflpedia

A **fraction** (/frækʃən/) is a number that represents a part of a whole. A fraction describes how many parts of a certain size there are, for example, one-half, eight-fifths, three-quarters.^{[1]}

In English this involves using a cardinal number (representing the numerator) with an ordinal number (representing the denominator). The exceptions (irregular numbers) are that we say "half" rather than "second" and also tend to say *quarter* rather than ^{?}"fourth".
