In normal rational arithmetic $\frac{12}{}$ or 5 is $\frac{52}{=}2.5$ . The result could be taken as 3 if we choose to round up.

Then$\frac{13}{}$ of 10 is $\frac{10}{3}=3.\stackrel{\u2015}{3}$ . If we round to the nearest value then we get 3. If we always round non-integers up, then we get 4.

If we simply take the antecedant "$\frac{12}{}$ of 5 is 3"" to be false, then we can deduce any consequent, e.g. that $\frac{13}{}$ of 10 is a herring or anything else we choose.

Then

If we simply take the antecedant "

Given:

$\frac{5}{2}=3$

Let us assume 10/3=x

Solve both equations

$\frac{5}{10}=\frac{6}{3}x$

$15x=60$

$x=4$

Hence,1/3 of 10 is 4

Let us assume 10/3=x

Solve both equations

Hence,1/3 of 10 is 4

Summing Odd Fractions to One

From the list $\frac{1}{3},\frac{1}{5},\frac{1}{7},\frac{1}{9},\frac{1}{11}$..... is it possible to chose a limited number of terms that sum to one? This can be done with even fractions: $\frac{1}{2},\frac{1}{4},\frac{1}{8},\frac{1}{12},\frac{1}{24}$
