### How to illustrate the fraction?

A fraction is simply a piece of a whole. The number is represented mathematically as a quotient where the numerator and denominator are split. In a simple fraction, the numerator as well as the denominator are both integers.
In this situation, she spent 1 1/6 hours writing her English composition and 3/10 hours on her Maths homework.
The time used for science will be:
= 3 – ( 1 1/6 + 3/10)
= 3 – (1 5/30 + 9/30)
= 3 – 1 14/30
= 1 8/15
