when n=d, then n divided by d called a whole number
if n more than d, then n divied by d what does it call
We call them IMPROPER FRACTIONS. Any fraction where the numerator (the number
above the fraction bar) is greater than the demoninator the number below the
frations bar) is called An Improper fraction. Fractions can be written as
improper fractions or as a mixed number (whole number and proper fraction).
Actually the first number you described (where n=d) is 1. If d divides n with
no remainder, then the fraction is a whole number.
