Answer

Proper: $\frac{1}{3}$, $\frac{5}{8}$, $\frac{7}{16}$ Improper: $\frac{8}{5}$, $\frac{6}{6}$, $\frac{12}{2}$

Work Step by Step

Telling the difference between proper and improper fractions is simple: if the numerator is less than the denominator (e.g. 1 is less than 3), the fraction is proper; if the numerator is greater than or equal to the denominator (e.g. 8 is greater than 5 or 6 is equal to 6), the fraction is improper.
