Re: Quotient, Ratio, Fraction; What's the difference?Hi; In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #3 20130729 01:11:57

Re: Quotient, Ratio, Fraction; What's the difference?The whole cake is divided into 3 pieces ( the denominator ) You eat 2 of them ( the numerator ). In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #5 20130729 01:25:14
Re: Quotient, Ratio, Fraction; What's the difference?I'm thinking like this: If the area of the cake is 1, then it's obvious that one third of the cake is (1/3), therefore two thirds is (2/3). #6 20130729 01:29:23
