2. Dissimilar Fractions are fractions with different denominators. Example $$\frac{2}{7}, \frac{1}{2}, \frac{5}{3}$$.
3. Unit Fraction is a fraction with a numerator equal to 1. Example $$\frac{1}{3}, \frac{1}{5}, \frac{1}{16}$$.
4. Proper Fraction is a fraction whose numerator is less than the numerator. Example $$\frac{2}{3}, \frac{4}{5}, \frac{9}{10}$$.
5. Improper Fraction is the opposite proper fractions. The numerator is greater than the denominator. Example $$\frac{12}{5}, \frac{9}{2}, \frac{11}{10}$$.
6. Mixed Fraction is a combination of a whole number and a fraction. Example $$1 \frac{2}{3}, 8\frac{1}{4}, 16\frac{2}{3}$$.
7. Equivalent Fractions are fractions with different denominator and numerator but with same value. Example $$\frac{2}{3} \: and \: \frac{4}{6}$$ are equivalent fractions.
