- They are a part of a whole number.
- As long as numbers go on forever they go on forever
- You can turn them into each other (i.e 5/10 can be turned into .50 or .5)
- They can be simplified.
- The greater the number the smaller the fraction.
- Some fractions/decimals can be simplified, some can't (i.e. .50-.5 .4- nothing it's the most simplified you can make it.)
- Fractions can be used to show whole numbers
- There are different types of fractions... Mixed Numbers, Normal Fraction, Improper Fraction, etc.
- Just like whole numbers, you can add, subtract, multiply, and divide fractions/decimals.
- In my opinion... it is much harder to +,-,x, and divide fractions/decimals
- Schools usually don't teach fractions/decimals until 3rd-4th grade, unlike whole numbers where you learn in K-1st grade.
- If you're converting fractions to decimals, then they probably have at least one same number (i.e. 8/10 to .8 the 8 is in both.)
