A fraction is the top number (called the numerator) divided by the bottom number (called the denominator). If we have a group of 50 people and 7 of them are under the age of 18, we can say the fraction of people in the group under the age of 18 is 7/50. We can also change this fraction to a percentage, which, in this case, is 14%.
