A fraction may be more or less accurate: it depends on the context.If measuring the length of a pencil, say, 0.2 metres (a fraction) is less accurate than 18 centimetres (an integer). So it depends on the units of measurements being used.


What is the fraction 256 if two inches is added on?

Explain why fractions need a common denominator to be added or subtracted?

The reason why is that a fraction is a different numbering system than whole numbers. The "whole number" system is based on units of 100. But a fraction is only a part of a whole number, so in order to add or subtract you must make both fractions the same type of unit just like whole numbers. You cannot add 1/6 and 2/24 unless you have the same units...which in this case is 24. So, multiplying the six by 4 will give you 4/24, and now you can add the numerators together because they are in the same "family".

How do you get a rate as a fraction?

Simplify the fraction to its simplest form.If this is 1/y then the unit rate is "1 unit per y units".If it is x/1 then the unit rate is "x units per unit".If it is x/y then the units rate is "(x/y) units per unit".
