# What fractional part of a day do you spend sleeping if you sleep 8 hours per day?

**Solution:**

One day consists of 24 hours.

Given, 8 hours per day is spent sleeping.

We have to find the fractional part of a day spent on sleeping for 8 hours per day.

The fractional part is the ratio of the number of hours you sleep to the total number of hours in a day. For example, a fractional part of twelve hours a day is 12/24= 1/2. The fractional part of 6 hours a day is 6/24= 1/4

Now let us find the fractional part of 8 hours per day = 8/24

= 1/3

Therefore, the fractional part of a day spent on sleeping is 1/3.

## What fractional part of a day do you spend sleeping if you sleep 8 hours per day?

**Summary:**

The fractional part of a day spent sleeping for 8 hours per day is 1/3.
