When you enter some fractions (1/4, 1/2, and 3/4), they instantly transition to a fraction character (i.e., 1/4, 1/2, and 3/4). Others, however, do not (1/3, 2/3, 1/5, and so on). Click Insert > Symbols > More Symbols to swap to a fraction character. Select a fraction from the Number Forms drop-down list in the Subset drop-down list. Press Enter.
So, What Exactly Is A Fraction? The fraction one-fourth, denoted by the sign 1/4, indicates "one piece where four pieces are required to constitute a whole." The fraction one-quarter, denoted by the sign 1/4, indicates "one component where four pieces are required to constitute a whole." One-fourth is equivalent to one-quarter plus half of another quarter.
One-fourth is used in many formulas and measurements. For example, one acre is understood to be 1640 square feet. One-quarter acre is 400 square feet. One-eighth acre is 20 square feet. One-fourth acre is 50 square feet.
People often ask how one-fourth is calculated. It's easy! Just divide 24 by 4 to get 6 bits (or octets) for each piece. Then, you can multiply any combination of sixths (bits) by their corresponding numbers from 0 to 5 to create all fractions with one-fourth as their denominator.
For example, if we wanted to create one-fourth of a pie, we would need to know how much a pie slice is. We could calculate this by dividing the total number of slices by the number of slices needed and then multiplying that result by 100 to turn it into a percent. So, one-fourth of a pie is 25 percent.
Or, we could say that one-fourth of a pie is 6 slices.
3/4 is 0.75 as a decimal. You can write 3/4 in many ways: 0.75, 072, or 72%. One way to think about it is that each of these representations of 3/4 contains the same amount of information. Another way to look at it is that each representation takes up the same amount of space. Yet another way to think about it is that each representation leads to the same result when added to 4.
Here are some other examples with their multiples:
1/2 = 0.5 1/4 = 0.25 1/8 = 0.125 1/16 = 0.0625 1/32 = 0.03125 1/64 = 0.015625
2/4 = 0.5 4/8 = 0.5 8/16 = 0.5 16/32 = 0.5 32/64 = 0.5
To write fractions as numerals, place the numerator above the denominator and separate them with a line. For example, if we divided anything into three pieces, each would be "1/3," while the other two would be "2/3": He ate two-thirds of the pizza by himself!
Fractions can also be expressed as sentences when there is no ambiguity about what part is being referred to. For example, "A quarter of my life has passed" or "One third of the movie was boring." Fraction sentences are easy to understand because you know exactly which part of the whole thing is being talked about.
There are two ways to express 1/3 in a sentence: one is using the word fraction, the other using the phrase third. In mathematics, a fraction is any part of a whole. So, yes, 1/3 can be written as a fraction. It's just that there's no need for it since it can be expressed in another way that sounds like math jargon but means the same thing - third!
Some examples of how 1/3 can be written in a sentence include: A quarter of his life had passed when he died. One third of the movie was boring. There were only three stars on this planet.
As for how you write 1/3 in words, here are two options: one-third or one-third'.

As a decimal, 4/10 is 0.4. As a fraction, 4/10 is 0.4. As a percentage, 4/10 is 40%. As a decimal number, 40 is the same as 4.0.
Another method to write and express "1/2" is "one over two." That's the same as 1/2 or half. This method is useful when you want to write out a fraction with only one digit after the decimal point, such as 0.5 or 2.5.
Over means above or greater than. Under means below or less than. So one over two means one-half or one-fifth of something. Two over five would be 0.4 or 40%. Five under one would be 0.01 or 1%.
So one over two is one-half. Two over five is 0.4. And five under one is 0.01.
This method can also be used with whole numbers. For example, 4 over 11 is 0.36 or 35%.
Two times three is six. One over six is 0.5. Three times five is 15. Five over eleven is 0.45..
As you can see, fractions can be expressed as a number over another number or as a percentage. These are just some examples; there are many more methods you can use.
Numerical The real number is represented by a fraction of 0.4, or 2/5. Thus, 2/5 of 12 is 6, and 2/5 of 24 is 48.
