The concept of consecutive has no meaning for fractions. This is because there are infinitely many fractions between any two fractions. And between any two of them, there are infinitely many, and so on. As a result, there cannot be any "next" fraction.

What are Consecutive Fractions?

A consecutive fraction is a number written as a series of alternating multiplicative inverses and integer addition operators. Consecutive fractions are studied in the number theory branch of mathematics. Consecutive fractions are also known as continued fractions and extended fractions.

Can consecutive integers be fractions?

No. The concept of consecutive makes sense for integers but not for fractions. Fractions are infinitely dense. This means that there are infinitely many fractions between any two numbers - including between any two fractions. So, given one fraction, f1, there cannot be a "next" or "consecutive" fraction, f2, because there are an infinite number of fractions between f1 and f2.
