In math, a unit fraction can be defined as a fraction whose numerator is 1. It represents 1 shaded part of all the equal parts of the whole. Here are a few examples of unit fractions. Fun Fact: The product of two unit fractions is another unit fraction.
To find a unit fraction of an amount, divide the amount by the denominator of the fraction. For example to find / of 18, divide 18 by 3. 18 ÷ 3 = 6 and so, one third of 18 is 6. / is a unit fraction with a denominator of 3.
I knew the numerator is the top and the denominator is the bottom.MoreI knew the numerator is the top and the denominator is the bottom.
Decompose a fraction into a sum of fractions with the same denominator in more than one way, recording each decomposition by an equation. Justify decompositions, e.g., by using a visual fraction model. Examples: 3/8 = 1/8 + 1/8 + 1/8 ; 3/8 = 1/8 + 2/8 ; 2 1/8 = 1 + 1 + 1/8 = 8/8 + 8/8 + 1/8.
