4. a whole is 1 = 2/2 = 4/4 = 22/22

if the top is bigger than the bottom, as in

3/2 or 54/23 or 19/4

then you have more than a whole. Say 3 people want to divide up 5 pies. Then each person gets 5/3 of a pie.

Naturally, since there are more pies than people, each person gets a share which is more than a whole pie.
