Ex. 4 is a composite number (factors: 1,2, and 4) 

denominator

The part of a fraction that stands for the number of equal parts a whole or group is divided into.
Ex. 5/6 6 is the denominator. 

cross product

In an equation made up of two fractions, the numerator of one fraction times the denominator of the other fraction. Two ratios are equal only if their cross products are equal.
Ex. 2/5=6/15 2 times 15 =30 and 5 times 6=30 are the cross products. 

improper fraction

A fraction with a numerator that is larger than or equal to its denominator.Ex. 7/6
