One-third is the same as five-fifteenths. Two-fifths is the same as six-fifteenths. Five-fifteenths plus six-fifteenths is eleven-fifteenths. One, or fifteen-fifteenths, minus eleven-fifteenths is four-fifteenths.
If the fraction is simplified then there is no number in the fraction which does so.
Fraction Basically means dividing different shape(or other things) into parts, and then finding out the numerator, which tells you the fraction.
The number of parts being counted is the numerator of a fraction The number of parts into which the whole has been divided is the denominator of a fraction.
24 ÷ 5 = 4.8 (Note: dividing by a fifth is to split the 24 into 5 parts.)
Draw a + then an X.....then you divided a square into 8 equal parts in one way.
You cannot have a quadrant (a quarter) in a shape that is divided into 9 parts!
The same as you calculate the fraction of anything. For example, a fifth of an hour is one part out of five equal parts of a whole hour.
9/17 does that.
