This template builds an alternative form of common fractions. The template takes one, two, or three parameters: the optional integer (may be signed), the optional numerator and the required denominator; in this order.

Please do not subst:itute it. This template should not be used in science or mathematical articles, per MOS:FRAC and MOS:MATH#Fractions; use {{sfrac}} instead. To allow numerical sorting of a column containing fractions, use {{sortfrac}} instead. It is a combination of this template and {{sort}}.

{{frac|A|B|C}}
A BC (integer, numerator and denominator)
<source lang=html5>A BC</source>
{{frac|A|B}}
AB (numerator and denominator)

{{frac|A}}

Deactivation and customization[edit]

Users who prefer to see fractions inline, e.g. "1 2⁄3" instead of "1 23", can turn off the effects of this template by adding the following code to their user stylesheet: <source lang="css">.frac > sup /* numerator */, .frac > sub /* denominator */ {

 vertical-align: inherit /* or baseline */;
 font-size: inherit /* or 1em */;
 line-height: inherit /* or 1 */;
 position: inherit /* or static */;

}</source>
