# How to Find Fraction of a Pear Shared Among People?

## What fraction of a pear does each person receive?

Seven pears are shared equally between nine people. How can we determine the fraction of a pear that each person receives?

## Answer:

If seven pears are divided equally between nine people, the fraction representing each person’s share of a pear is 7/9 of a pear.

When we divide seven pears equally between nine people, we are essentially dividing the whole into nine equal parts. Each of these parts represents a share of a pear for each person.

In fractional representation, the numerator (7) indicates how many parts (pears) are being shared, while the denominator (9) represents the total number of equal parts the whole is divided into (people).

So, each person would receive 7/9 of a pear when seven pears are shared equally between nine people. This means that each person gets a little less than a whole pear as their share.
