A fraction is a number that names a part of a whole. If a whole bar has 2 red tiles and 3 blue tiles, there are 5 tiles in the whole. The bottom number in a fraction is called the denominator and represents the number of equal-sized pieces in the whole. The top number in a fraction is called the numerator and represents the numbers of pieces in the part. So the red tiles represent 2/5 of the whole.
