Inserting a Fraction between Two Given Fractions



Inserting a fraction between two given fractions are discussed below:

If a/b and c/d are two given fractions and a/b < c/d then

a/b < (a+c)/(b+d) < c/d.



Example:

1. Insert a fraction between 2/3 and 5/6, given 2/3 < 5/6.

Solution:

Required fraction between 2/3 and 5/6 is (2+5)/(3+6)=7/9

Therefore, 2/3 < 7/9 < 5/6.






2. Insert a fraction between 1/2 and 3/4, given 1/2 < 3/4.

Solution:

Required fraction between 1/2 and 3/4 is (1+3)/(2+4)=4/6=2/3.



3. Insert a fraction between 2/3 and 3/4, given 2/3 3/4.

Solution:

Required fraction between 2/3 and 3/4 is (2+3)/(3+4) = 5/7.



4. Insert a fraction between 5/7 and 3/4, given 5/7 < 3/4.

Solution:

Required fraction between 5/7 and 3/4 is (5+3)/(7+4) = 8/11.



5. Insert a fraction between 5/7 and 8/11, given 5/7 < 8/11.

Solution:

Required fraction between 5/7 and 8/11 is (5+8)/(7+11) = 13/18.
