Question

# Identify the fraction that can NOT be replaced with when estimating?

Hint:

### Fractions are referred to as the components of a whole in mathematics. A single object or a collection of objects might be the entire. A piece or sector of any quantity is another name for the fraction. It is indicated by the sign "/," such as a/b. For instance, in the fraction 2/4, the lower part represents the denominator, and the top part the numerator.

We have given a fractional number and we have to identify the fraction that cannot be replaced with .

## The correct answer is:

### In general, the whole can be any particular thing or value, and the fraction might be a portion of any quantity out of it. The top and bottom numbers of a fraction are explained by the fundamentals of fractions. Fractions are further broken down into various categories based on the characteristics of the numerator and denominator.

As follows:

- Proper fractions
- Improper fractions
- Mixed fractions
- Like fractions
- Unlike fractions
- Equivalent fractions

Estimating sums and differences of fractions to the nearest 1/2:

- Fractions < 1/4 are rounded down to 0
- Fractions ≥ 1/4 and ≤ 3/4 are rounded to 1/2
- Fractions > 3/4 are rounded up to 1

Here the fraction that we have given is , , and , we have to identify the fraction that cannot be replaced with 1.

So after looking at these numbers we can round them off as follows:

can be rounded to

can be rounded to

can be rounded to 0

can be rounded to

So, cannot be rounded to .

The numerical numbers that make up a fraction of the whole are called fractions. A whole can be a single item or a collection of items. A fraction is represented as a/b, where a and b are the numerator and denominator, respectively. Here we were given a fractional number and we have to identify the fraction that cannot be replaced with , so, cannot be rounded to .
