# Math Help - Is there a software that allow fractions to be written and copyied as ½?

1. ## Is there a software that allow fractions to be written and copyied as ½?

I'd rather write my fraction in this format than these:

1
-
2

or

1

2

2. Do you realize that many of us want to ‘outlaw’ “mixed fractions”?
Why would anyone write $3\frac{2}{3}$ instead of $\frac{11}{3}?$

How would expect a student to write $0.003\frac{2}{3}?$

3. Thanks, that solves it for me!

I used a BBC code to HTML code converter that they made these results (I separated the lines because of formatting mixup in these forums):

<p>[tex]<br />

3\frac{2}{3}<br />

4. Oh, that's hilarious! My first reactions was "Why is Plato giving a response that is completely irrelevant!
