A fraction (except n/1) is a *different* number, not a part of a number. If the numbers are used to express quantities, than the fractional quantity is a different quantity. If the fraction is between 0 and n, then a proper part of something whose quantity was expressed as n, could have its (the part's) quantity expressed as the fraction. Of course, something totally different could have its quantity expressed as the same fraction.    (02) This is not a parthood relation.    (03) -- doug f    (04) > Mike > > On 10/05/2013 10:48, Ravi Sharma wrote: >> any fraction for example 1/4, 1/8, etc. >> >> On Thu, May 9, 2013 at 4:02 PM, doug foxvog > > wrote: >> >> On Thu, May 9, 2013 14:57, Ravi Sharma wrote: >> >> > How do we define the situation where the whole and part are part >> of the >> > same entity? >> > Such as a whole number? >> >> We define different types of parthood.
