# Write a Whole Number as a Fraction

A fraction is used to represent an equal part of a whole.

## Answer: Divide the whole number by 1 to get the fractional form.

**Explanation:**

Let us understand this with an example.

Suppose we have a whole number 6 and we want to represent it as a fraction.

It needs to be of the form p/q.

So the numerator p will be 6 and the denominator q will be 1 to give 6/1.
