The Use of Fractional Number and Decimal Number分数和小数的最先运用Fractional number分数The first appearance of fractional numbers(fen shu in Chinese ) was a result of dividing two numbers. A fraction number was considered a part of a whole number, and in Chinese，the word fen means to split or divide.Later，in the process of calculation，fractional numbers also appeared to denote the ratio of two whole numbers. Systematic fractional number algorithm appeared in the ancient math classic Jiuzhang Suanshu(Nine Chapters on Mathematical Art)in the Eastern Han Dynasty around the 1 st century，which was about 1,400 years ear-tier than in Europe.最初分数的经常出现，并非由乘法而来。分数被看做一个整体的一部分。
In the annotated version of Jiuzhang Suanshu by Liu Hui，it clearly shows the algorithm of the subtraction，addition，multiplication，and division of fractional numbers，which is identical to todays fractional calculations. Besides, other knowledge about fractions, including how to compare two fractions，and how to calculate the average of fractions，were also included in the book, making Jiuzhang Suanshu the earliest monograph that systematically discussed fractional numbers.从后来刘徽所不作的《九章算术录》可以告诉，在《九章算术》中，谈到大约分、合分(分数乘法)、减分(分数除法)、乘分(分数乘法)、除分(分数乘法)的法则，与我们现在的分数运算法则完全相同。另外，《九章算术》还记述了课分(较为分数大小)、平分(欲分数的平均值)等关于分数的科学知识，是世界上最先的系统描述分数的著作。It was not until the 15th century that calculations with fractional numbers be-came popular in Europe. It is generally believed in Europe that the algorithm of frac-tional numbers originated in India，while the fact is the earliest Indian book on the algorithm of fractions appeared in the seventh century，in which were introduced the same rules as the those in Jiuzhang Suanshu .And even the annotated version of Jiuzhang Suanshu by Liu Hui was completed in 263 in the Wei Dynasty(220-265)，which means that the algorithm of fractions is at least 400 years earlier than its counterpart in India.分数运算，约在巧世纪才在欧洲风行。
Decimal number小数Also in the annotated version of Jiuzhang Suanshu by Liu Hui，the notion of the decimal number was first raised up. Liu invented the decimal number to denote the approximate number value of root extradions. Around the year 1300，Liu Jin in the Yuan Dynasty wrote the number 106368. 6312 as 一 □ ⊥ Ⅲ ⊥ Ⅲ M ＿ⅡIn his book Lulu Chengshu.The notion of decimal number appeared in the West in 1585 and the expression is rather difficult.For instance，the same number mentioned above would be expressed as (0) ① ② ③ ④or106368 06①3②l③2④刘徽在(九章算术录》中讲解，开方不尽时用十入分数(徽数，即小数)去迫近，首先明确提出了关于十入小数的概念。到公元1300年前后，元代刘瑾(公元1271一1368年)所著《律吕成书》中，一并106368.6312写:一 □ ⊥ Ⅲ ⊥ Ⅲ M ＿Ⅱ。而西方直到1585年才有十入小数的概念，且回应方法很简单，如上述小数，读音为:(0) ① ② ③ ④或106368 06①3②l③2④。
