Usage of fractions in spoken english

    Author:     Member Level: Silver    Points: 1 (₹ 1)

When we use fractional numbers in sentences, we should use the plural form of the fraction and not the singular form.
e.g., the fraction '3/4' should be spelt as 'three-fourths' and not 'three-fourth'.

Sample Usage

Wrong usage: I have finished three-fourth of my work.
Correct usage: I have finished three-fourths of my work.

Next Resource: Appropriate use of pronoun
Previous Resource: Usage of better words.
