# What Is a Unit Fraction?

**A unit fraction is a fraction where the top number, known as the numerator, is one, and the bottom number, known as the denominator, is any positive number.** Additionally, the denominator must be an integer, or round number.

Unit fractions are the reciprocals of positive integers. For example, the reciprocal of two is the unit fraction one-half.

Unit fractions, when added, result in a fractional sum with a numerator that is the sum of the denominators of the factors and a denominator that is the product of the denominators of the factors. For example, the sum of one-third and one-fourth is seven-twelfths; the numerator is three plus four, while the denominator is three times four.
