1 Answer. **4/7**=1/7+1/7+1/7+1/7.

**See full answer. In this way, what is 4/7 as a sum of unit fractions?**

**4/7**=8/14.

Similarly, what does a unit fraction? 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. Examples **are** 1/1, 1/2, 1/3, 1/4 ,1/5, etc.

**Also, what is a unit fraction for 4th grade?**

**Unit Fractions**: Part of the Number One When it comes to **unit fractions**, each **unit fraction** is a part of the number 1. For example, 1/2 is a half of 1, 1/3 is a third of 1, 1/**4** is a **fourth** of 1, and so on. To illustrate this, let’s consider your pie.

## What is 4/6 as a sum of unit fractions?

It is written as follows: 1/6 +1/6 +1/6+ 1/6= **4/6**. A **unit fraction** has a numerator of 1 so since 4 is the numerator in **4/6** you would have to add 1/6 for four times.

Which equation represents 3×3 5 as a multiple of a unit fraction?

The answer is 9/**5** as 3×3 is 9 and you are dividing it by **5**.

### Can any fraction be shown as a sum of unit fractions?

Students must be able to show that a **fraction can** be written as a **sum of unit fractions**, as long as the denominator remains the same (and must be greater than 0). The original numerator **can** be larger than the denominator.

### Why is it called a unit fraction?

A **unit fraction** is one part of a whole that is divided into equal parts. A **unit fraction** has 1 as the top number, which is the numerator. Have another look at the **fractions** above. With **unit fractions**, when the bottom number – **called** the denominator – is bigger, the value of the **unit fraction** is smaller.

### What is unit and non unit fractions?

A **unit fraction** is any **fraction** where the numerator is 1, eg ¼. A **non**–**unit fraction** is a **fraction** where the numerator is not 1, eg ?. Mixed **fractions** are a mix of whole numbers and a **fraction** together, eg 1 ¼.

### Why are unit fractions important?

You can think of a **unit fraction** as a base or a starting point. It is **important** that students know what **unit** they are working with. Math as a Second Language proposes that when students know what **unit** they are working with they will have an easier time understanding the concept. In the example above, the **unit** is foot.

### How do you explain improper fractions?

An **improper fraction** is a **fraction** that has a larger number on the top than on the bottom. The number on the top of the **fraction** is a numerator and the number on the bottom is a denominator. Therefore, an **improper fraction** has a greater numerator than denominator.

### What is the unit fraction of 5 8?

The most basic way to decompose a fraction is to break into unit fractions, which is when the numerator (top number) is 1. We can see that 5/8 is the same as the unit **fraction 1**/8 five times.

### What is a mixed fraction?

A whole number and a **fraction** combined into one “**mixed**” number. Example: 1½ (one and a half) is a **mixed fraction**. (Also called a **Mixed** Number) **Mixed Fractions**.

### What is the unit fraction of 3 4?

Last updated Mar 29 2008. Answer has 5 votes. A **unit fraction** is apparently a **fraction** with the numerator 1, so **3/4** is NOT a **unit fraction**, because its numerator is 3.

### What is like and unlike fraction?

**Like and Unlike Fractions**. The **fractions** with the same denominators are called **like fractions**. In group (ii) the denominator of each **fraction** is different, i.e., the denominators of all the **fractions** are different. The **fractions** with different denominators are called **unlike fractions**.

### Can a whole number be written as a fraction?

Yes. But not any **fraction**. 5/8, for example, is 0.625 if you write out its decimal expansion. However, if the denominator (**number** on the bottom of the **fraction**) is either 1 or a divisor of the numerator (**number** on the top), then the **number can** be **written** as a **whole number**.

### Why is it a unit fraction?

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. Examples are 1/1, 1/2, 1/3, 1/4 ,1/5, etc.
