Most of us skip that part. Few examples on proper fraction shortcuts is given in this page below. All tricks on proper fraction are provided here. Visitors are requested to carefully read all shortcut examples. These examples will help you to understand shortcut tricks on Proper fraction.


Before starting anything just do a math practice set. Write down twenty math problems related to this topic on a page. Using basic math formula do first ten maths of that page. You also need to keep track of Timing. After finish write down total time taken by you to solve those ten maths. Now practice our shortcut tricks on proper fraction and read examples carefully. After this do remaining ten questions and apply shortcut formula on those math problems. Again keep track of the time. You will surely see the improvement in your timing this time. But this is not all you need. If you need to improve your timing more then you need to practice more.

Few Important things to Remember

We all know that the most important thing in competitive exams is Mathematics. It doesn’t mean that other topics are not so important.

All you need to do is to do math problems correctly within time, and this can be achieved only by using shortcut tricks. But it doesn’t mean that you can’t do math problems without using any shortcut tricks. You may have that potential that you may do maths within time without using any shortcut tricks.

But, other peoples may not do the same. Here we prepared proper fraction shortcut tricks for those people. We always try to put all shortcut methods of the given topic. But it possible we miss any. We appreciate if you share that with us. Your help will help others.


A numerical quantity that is not a whole number,Suppose P/Q is represented as a Fraction in which we can called P as a Numerator and Q as a Denominator.Or we can say if a unit number divisible by a equal number or more these part is called fraction, here is proper fraction type.Some important note:

  • If numerator part and the denominator part are equal than we can say it unity fraction.
  • If a numerator of a fraction is Zero and its denominator is non-Zero than we can say it is a similar to Zero.
  • we can not change the value of numerator and the denominator part using identical number with multiplying or dividing. Example: 3 / 6 = 3 x 2 / 6 x 2 , = 3 ÷ 6 / 6 ÷ 6


Proper fraction:

A fraction is called a proper fraction when Numerator part is always less then Denominator by 1.
Example: 2 / 3, 4 / 5, 15 / 16 etc.

Find the sum of proper fraction? 

  • 2 / 3 + 4 / 6 = ?

Here is All the fractions are less than 1, First we LCM of 3, 6 and we get 6 ,
4 + 4 / 6 = 8 / 6 = 4 / 3

  • 4 / 6 + 9 / 10 + 6 / 8 = ?

here LCM of 6 , 10 , 8 and we get 120,
80+ 108+ 90 / 120 = 278 / 120,
278 / 120 = 139 / 60.
