Learn and know what is a **vulgar fraction definition**? In fractions concept in math. Fractions are one of the important chapters in the lower classes. In this chapter students will be given some real life examples to understand in a better way. For example, if an Apple is cut into 4 pieces then what is the representation of each part? Like these so many examples will be given for understanding the concept.

Hope you know what is a fraction and its representation. And also i hope that you know the basic types of fractions like proper fraction, improper fraction and mixed fraction. Now we will learn about **vulgar fraction**. Before learning this, I have a simple question to you. Do you know what is a decimal fraction? If you know about decimal fraction then it is easy to say **what is vulgar fraction**. The opposite definition of decimal fraction gives the **definition of vulgar fraction**. Anyhow now we will which fractions are **vulgar fractions** with examples.

**Definition of vulgar fraction as follows:**

If the denominator of a fraction is a whole number other than 10, 100, 1000, 10000,100000…etc is called a **vulgar fraction**.

(or)

If the denominator of a fraction is in the form of { 10 }^{ x } where* x* is a natural number is called a **vulgar fraction**.

NOTE:

♦ Both the definitions are same with different sentence formation. So any definition we can give for **vulgar fraction. **

Ex:

♦ \frac { 8 }{ 9 } , \frac { 7 }{ 13 } , \frac { 99 }{ 42 } , \frac { 117 }{ 123 } … are examples of vulgar fraction. In all these examples, the denominator is not 10 or 100 or 1000 or 10000 or…………….etc.

♦ \frac { 3 }{ 100 } and \frac { 24 }{ 10 } are not vulgar fractions because it is not satisfying **vulgar fraction definition**.

♦ Below I will give some fractions find out in that which are vulgar fractions.

\frac { 36 }{ 5 } , \frac { 14 }{ 7 } , \frac { 210 }{ 190 } , \frac { 39 }{ 27 } , \frac { 58 }{ 10 } , \frac { 654 }{ 1000 } , \frac { 93 }{ 21 } , \frac { 44 }{ 100 } , \frac { 870 }{ 55 } .

After going through the **vulgar fraction definition** and examples, i hope that now you have learnt it.
