## A number as a fraction

Now the word *house* is to be translated into Chinese. If you ask the dictionary, you get *rénjiā* as a translation.
But there are also the following possibilities:
*zhùwū, zháizi, jiā, wū, wūyŭ, fáng, fángwū, fángzi* or *guăn*.

The same problem exists with the translation of the number 2 into a fraction:

2 = ^{2}/_{1} = ^{4}/_{2} = ^{6}/_{3} = ^{8}/_{4} = ...

In fact, there are infinite possibilities for each number to represent it as a fraction.
