# Identify unit fractionsfor 6th grade

Identify the fractions that are unit fractions, or will simplify to unit fractions

### Identify unit fractions

A unit fraction is a fraction where the numerator is always 1. For example, 1/2, 1/3, and 1/4 are all unit fractions.

To identify a unit fraction, you need to look at the numerator of the fraction. If the numerator is 1, then it is a unit fraction.

Here are some examples of how to identify unit fractions:

Example 1: 2/3
The numerator of this fraction is 2, so it is not a unit fraction.

Example 2: 1/4
The numerator of this fraction is 1, so it is a unit fraction.

Example 3: 2/6
The numerator of this fraction is 2, so it is not a unit fraction. However, you can see that this fraction can be simplified to the unit fraction 1/3 by dividing numerator and denominator by 2.

Remember this topic asks you to identify unit fractions ...
... but also fractions that simplify to unit fractions.

Example 4: 1/1
The numerator of this fraction is 1, so it is a unit fraction.

In general, the form of a unit fraction is 1/denominator where the denominator can be any positive integer except for 0.

Identifying unit fractions is important in many mathematical operations, such as adding and subtracting fractions, and converting between fractions and decimals.
