You can find a missing denominator if you know something that the fraction is equal to. Then you can find the missing denominator through cross multiplication.

Stating infinity as a fraction is something like trying to find what is north of the north pole. Infinity can only be infinity.

find something and put it over something. Ex. 12 cats and 20 pets. How many are cats? 12:20 =6:10=3:5. Fraction: 3/5
