A Study of Two-Term Unit Fraction Expansions via Geometric Approach
Man, Yiu-Kwong
Teaching Mathematics and Its Applications: An International Journal of the IMA, v28 n1 p43-47 Mar 2009
In this article, we report a study of two-term unit fraction expansions using a geometric approach. It provides us insight on how to find all two-term unit fraction expansions and identify the property of the expansions with smallest maximal denominators, for a given unit fraction. These findings will be useful to lecturers or teachers involved in teaching history of mathematics or elementary number theory.
