# Is 3/4 a unit fraction?

Question #33539. Asked by no-one.. (May 12 03 10:38 PM)

Tabby Tom

A unit fraction is apparently a fraction with the numerator 1, so 3/4 is NOT a unit fraction, because its numerator is 3.

(I hadn't heard of unit fractions till now. As a respectable grammar-school boy, I only kept company with proper fractions, and I ignored the blandishments of improper fractions and the insults of vulgar fractions).

A unit fraction is a rational number written as a fraction where the numerator is one and the denominator is a positive integer. (1/x)

 PI has now been calculated to 1.24 trillion places. Most people use 3.142 for decimal calculations, or 22/7 (3 and one seventh) as a vulgar or simple fraction. 22/7 = 3.142857.... but PI actually starts 3.1415926535. Now 355/113 = 3,14159292 . This makes 355/133 better to use than 22/7 The further you go, you come up with yet another fractional representation that is better than the last. Which fraction is nearest to the 1.24 trillion decimal placed PI ?
