Solution:

In fractions, the number above the division line is the numerator; the number below the division line is denominator.

Explanation

In fractions, the number above the division line is the numerator; the number below the division line is denominator.

The number present on top of the division line of a fraction is called numerator. The number present on bottom of the division line of a fraction is called denominator.

Numerator represents the dividend and denominator represents the divisor in the division.
