For example, 5/7 is the same as 5 times 1/7.

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.

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.

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

In a unit fraction, the numerator is always the number 1. 9/10 cannot be written as a unit fraction.

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

Multiply by the reciprocal.

For example, 5/7 is the same as 5 times 1/7.

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
