    When writing out fractions, such as 1/2, 1/4, etc, you usually write them out as "one-half" or "one-fifth" unless they are at the beginning of the sentence. Example of hyphenated fraction: John hungrily ate one-half of the pizza. Example of non-hyphenated fraction: One half of the pizza is pepperoni and pineapple.

    Actually @imammalik_806, this can be considered a grammar question! They're asking how to grammatically correctly write a fraction as a word. Though it would be best to go to the math section for this, replies would be faster and this question there would be more appropriate.
