UPPER LEVEL SSAT SAMPLE QUESTION: Fractions
Here’s a SSAT sample question to help you practice the type of fraction problem you may find on the quantitative section of the Upper Level SSAT.
What are fractions?
A fraction has a numerator and a denominator. The numerator is on top, and the denominator is on the bottom. The numerator is divided by the denominator.
For example: in the fraction ½: 1 is the numerator and 2 is denominator.
When fractions have the same numerator but different denominators, the one with the larger denominator is smaller. For example: 1/4 > 1/8
