improper fraction (US, British or Australian) or top-heavy fraction (British only) if the absolute value of the numerator is greater than or equal to the absolute value of the denominator (e.g. \tfrac{9}{7}).

A vulgar fraction (or common fraction) is a rational number written as one integer (the numerator) divided by a non-zero integer (the denominator), for example, \tfrac{1}{3}, \tfrac{3}{4} and \tfrac{4}{3}.
