## Fractional numbers - spelling and pronunciation in German

### introduction

Fractional numbers are numbers that consist of a numerator, denominator and fraction line. We find these numbers in German not only in mathematics, but also, for example, in recipes (½ liter of water).

Learn and practice the spelling and pronunciation of German fractions.

### education

To form the fractions, we use the cardinal number in the numerator (for *one* falls that -*s* path). The actual fraction is in the denominator: It is formed from the root word of the ordinal number plus -*el*.

### Declination of fractions

Just *one* in the counter or *half* in the denominator are declined. Otherwise the fractions remain unchanged.

- Example:
- I drink half a liter of coffee every day.
- He ordered a quarter of a liter of wine.
- She bought two half loaves.

The number *one* is declined like the indefinite article, the word *half* like an adjective.

- Example:
- a half
*it*Kilos of flour*(neutral, nominative)* - for a
*en*half*en*Day*(masculine, accusative)* - in a
*he*half*en*hour*(feminine, dative)* - despite a
*it*half*en*Liters deviation*(masculine, genitive)*

### Spelling

### Large and lower case

If there is a noun directly after the fraction, then we write both parts of the written number in lowercase.

- Example:
- two
*one-third**liter*milk

If this is not the case, the denominator of the fraction is treated as a noun and is capitalized.

- Example:
- I only have two
*one-third*of what I wanted, made it. - I got a quarter of the questions wrong.

### Separate and combined writing

Usually the fraction is written separately from the unit of measure.

- Example:
- a quarter liter of water
- three eighths of a kilo of flour

However, if the fractional number and measure are seen as a unit, they are written together.

- Example:
- three quarters of an hour
- the six-eight time
- a quarter liter

### Peculiarity of "half"

The noun too *half* reads *half*.

- Example:
- I have the
*half*Eaten cake. → I ate half of the cake.

The adjective ending is omitted when spelling together.

- Example:
- a half
*it*Year → half a year

Stands in front *a half* a whole number, it becomes a word.

- Example:
- 1½ → one and a half / one and a half
- 2 ½ → two and a half
- 3½ → three and a half
- I've lived here for five and a half years.

### Fractional numbers without a numerator

In certain cases we only use the fractional denominator. This is especially true of the words *half, third, quarter* and *eighth*.

- Example:
- The team is in
*eighth*final. To that*quarter*To reach the finals, the players have to be in the first*Half*Time to put pressure on and increase the attack*one-third*act.
