II. How to write fractions

1. General:
Numerator: in cardinal number
Denominator: in ordinal number
Ex: 4/5: four fifths
2/9: two ninths
2. Notes:
If the numerator is greater than one =>
the denominator will be in plural.
Ex: 3/8: three eighths
9/12: nine twelfths
If the denominator has more than 2 digits
=> we have to say it number by number
and use over between the numerator
and denominator.
Ex: 56/89: fifty six over eight nine
3/567: three over five six seven
Using “and” to connect the integer and
the fraction for the special following
case:
Ex: 3 4/5: three and four fifths
14 38/87: fourteen and thirty eight over
eight seven
