Fractions and rational numbers – What's the difference?

Most of us are going through math courses and are still confused about some basic things. For example: Why can not you break zero? Why is .999 … equal to 1, not less?

There are many such questions that would not be a cause for frustration if they learned sensibly and clearly. 19659002] Unfortunately, most of these things are supposed to be covered in primary school, and most primary school teachers do not have a good understanding of mathematical concepts. Instead, they only have to teach a collection of "skills".

One of the simplest concepts that usually remains inadequately explained is the difference between fractions and rational numbers. Let's see if we can clear it now

is a number that expresses part of the whole as a part of numbers (where the denominator is not zero)

A is a number that can be expressed as part of numbers (where the denominator is not zero), or as a decimal or recurring decimal. Each part corresponds to the first part of this definition. Therefore, each fraction is a rational number

But although each fraction is a rational number, not every rational number is a small fraction
