Description

The ancient Egyptians used a different representation of a number than we do: they expressed a number as a sum of its integer part and a sum of simple fractions with numerator equal to $1$, e. g. ${2\over3}={1\over2}+{1\over6}$. This package defines the function EgyptianDecomposition to generate this representation.
