An improper fraction is a common fraction that has a numerator that is bigger than (or equal to ) the denominator.

The following fractions are examples of improper fractions.

Because the numerator is at least as big as the denominator, the common fraction will always name a number equal to ( or bigger ) than 1

For example, notice that 5/5 =1 and 3/2 = 1.5
