A unit fraction is a rational number written as a fraction where the numerator is one and the denominator is a positive integer. A unit fraction is therefore the reciprocal of a positive integer, 1/n.

It has "1" for the numerator.

To the nearest whole number it rounds to 45469

A unit fraction is any fraction with 1 in the numerator.

The number 87980 is already rounded off to the nearest unit or whole number as no decimal values are given.

It is the first whole number divided by the denominator of the unit fraction. This could be a whole number or a fraction.

The quotient will be less. 1/2 ÷ 2 = 1/4

to divide a whole number by a fraction you invert the fraction and multiply. For example 5 divided by 1/10 = 5 x 10 = 50

it is smaller (1/2)/2=.25

As long as the whole number is not zero, it becomes a unit fraction with a larger denominator, ie one with a smaller value.

Rules for division -- invert the fractional divisor and multiply let 1 / k = a unit fraction where k is any counting number, let m = any whole number so 1 / k divided by m becomes 1 / k multiplied by 1 / m = 1 / (km) the result is a new unit fraction with denominator equal to the old denominator times the whole number.

Unit fractions are fractions where the top number (numerator) is 1. EG: 1 over 5 ( 1/5 ) - The top number is 1 so it is a unit fraction.a unit fraction is any fraction with a numerator of 1 for example: 1/8 is a unit fraction 1/125, is a unit fraction 9/16 is NOTa unit fraction

The answer will depend on the sign of the fraction.(1/4) / 2 = 1/8, which is smaller.(-1/4) / 2 = -1/8, which is greater.

Rules for dividing by a fraction are multiply by the reciprocal. The reciprocal of a unit fraction is a whole number. Multiplying by a whole number will make the answer (quotient) larger. ex unit fraction 1/a 7 divided by 1/a = 7 x a/1 = 7a .... a times larger than 7.

No, a mixed number cannot be a unit fraction.

You could write it as 7120 * 1/10.
