If the line part is at a slant, the denominator is on the right.The upper part is called the numerator of the fraction. For example:

  • In [math]3/4[/math] the denominator is "4".
  • In [math]23+76/100[/math] the denominator is "100".
  • In [math]15/(35+7)[/math] the denominator is "(35+7)".
  • In [math]a / (6b + c)[/math], the denominator is "(6b + c)".
