Ancient Egyptians used unit fractions, such as $${{1\over2}}$$ and $${{1\over3}}$$, to represent all fractions. For example, they might write the number $${{{{2\over3}}}}$$ as $${{{1\over2}}}+{1\over6}$$.
We often think of $${{{{2\over3}}}}$$ as $${{{1\over3}}}+{{{1\over3}}}$$, but the ancient Egyptians would not write it this way because they didn’t use the same unit fraction twice.
i. $${{{1\over2}}}+{{{1\over3}}}$$
ii. $${{{1\over2}}}+{{{1\over3}}}+{1\over5}$$
iii. $${{1\over4}+{1\over5}+{1\over12}}$$
