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.
