User: how do you express 1/3 as a fulgar fraction

Weegy: As far as I can tell, vulgar fractions are just fractions and are meant to contrast with decimal numbers (e.g. 1/2 = .5). I assume the term vulgar refers to usage among the general public (from the original Latin meaning of "people") vs. [ the scientific community who presumably stick to decimals. ]

Vulgar fractions, also known as common fractions, represent a part of a whole, consisting of a numerator (top number) indicating the parts taken and a denominator (bottom number) indicating the total number of equal parts.

1/3 is already expressed as a vulgar fraction; it is a common or vulgar way to represent the fraction where 1 is the numerator and 3 is the denominator.
