I had almost forgot about this distinction.

Proper fractions always have a smaller number in the numerator than in the denominator. (On top than under)

Examples of proper fractions

1/2 , 2/5 , 6/17

Improper fractions have a larger numerator than denominator like

5/2 , 7/4 , 20/17

These fractions can be rewritten with whole numbers included like

5/2 = 2(1/2)

7/4 = 1(3/4)

20/17=1(3/17)
