    To read and say a fraction out loud, follow these steps:

    1. Numerator: Pronounce the number on top, which is called the numerator. For example, in the fraction 3/4, you would say “three”.

    2. Fraction Bar: Say the word “over” to represent the fraction bar.

    3. Denominator: Pronounce the number on the bottom, which is called the denominator. For example, in the fraction 3/4, you would say “four”.

    So, the complete way to read the fraction 3/4 out loud would be: “Three over four.”

    Some other examples:

    • 1/2 = “One over two”
    • 5/8 = “Five over eight”
    • 14/25 = “Fourteen over twenty-five”

    The key is to verbalize the numerator, say “over”, and then verbalize the denominator. This clearly communicates the value of the fraction.
