They are not alike, they are different, but they can be identical in value. Example :- 3/4 and 0.75 are different ways of expressing the same quantity and they are not alike at all.

No. They thought that all fractions could be expressed as combinations of unit fractions. They and other ancients may have thought that any fraction could be wretten as a combination of unit fractions, but according to wikipedia they (ancient Egyptians) had special symbols for 2/3 and 3/4 and even had a papyrus used by scribes that listed the equivalents for 2/n, so they did not always write fractions as this combination of unit fractions. Does your question mean a combination of unit fractions, or as a unit fraction?

Decimals and fractions are alike because all decimals are fractions and all fractions are decimals. As an example: 1/2, which is one-half, is the same as 0.5.

They have the same numerator (1) but different denominators. Since the numerator is 1 in each fraction, it cannot be simplified therefore each unit fraction is in its simplest form. Then, because the denominators of any two of them are different the fractions must be different.

How would we do it well remember a unit fraction always has one as a numerator. So 2/3 would be 1/3 plus 1/3. These are the unit fractions. It's got a 1 is a numerator all right 5/6 would be a 1 6.
