    I found a video explaining fraction decomposition. Let me post video here.

    I was wondering what "decomposing" meant here!
    I can understand it meaning "break into two (or more) fractions that add to the given fraction": 23/16= 10/16+ 13/16 (or many other pairs of fractions, or more than two fractions) but I could also set it meaning "break into two (or more) fraction that multiply to the given fraction". 23 is prime so the numerators can only be 1 and 23 but there can be many denominators: 23/16= (1/4)(23/4)= (23/8)(1/2)= (1/8)(23/2) etc.
