To express a whole number as a fraction, apply the identity property of division in which a number divided by 1 is equal to the number itself.


`22 = 22-:1 `

Then, we need to take note that a fraction is the same as dividing a number by another number.

The dividend in division is the numerator (top number) of the fraction, where as, the divisor is the denominator (bottom number).

So, re-writing the operation `22-: 1` as a fraction yields: 

`22-:1 = 22/1`

Hence, the equivalent fraction of 22 is `22/1` .
