The Paper Fraction Conqueror by Ralueke ikejiani

With a pencil and a protractor, I sliced, diced and slayed circles in eight different ways.
I made one and a half, three-halves, 150% and...
one and two-thirds, five-thirds, that's 166.6666666666666666666666%

I'd conquered the fractions with little fear and it was time to count my spoils...

Two cuts: one, two, three, four-halves. Six cuts: one, two, three, four, five-thirds. 4 cuts: one, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight-fourths.
One-fifth, two-fifths, three-fifths is 20%+20%+20% = 60% of the whole. 1,2,3,4,5...6 sixths is one. One, two, three, four, five-eights is 45 degrees times 5 (225 degrees). Oh, if my old math teacher could see me now.
I am precisely 160% sure (that's sixteen-tenths or 8/5 or one whole and eight-fifths) that they would be proud. I do not fear fractions anymore, and I'll shout that fact out loud. As this tale comes to an end, I'll count just one last thing: two, four, six-twelfths is just the same as half a solid ring.

The End
