A complex fraction is a fraction where the numerator or dividend and denominator or divisor contains a fraction. Thus the complex fraction will be in the following form:
(a / b) / (p / q)
Here a/b and p/q are simple Fractions and when we place a/b as numerator and p/q as denominator then it becomes a complex fraction.
Example: (1/4) / (2/3) is a complex fraction with numerator ¼ and the denominator is 2/3.
