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}}.

A BC (integer, numerator and denominator)
AB (numerator and denominator)
