    In the attached examples, a blank space in the numerator position in the fractions does *not represent an omission.
    I believe these fractions imply one (1) of the particular unit, as in 1/10, 1/100, 1/1000.
    Use of the full cell seems unadvisable, leading the reader to think that the space must be filled in.
    I'm at a loss as to how to proceed.
    Please advise!

    I agree with you that the blank numerators in the example you provide do not represent space that the reader needs to fill.

    Is it possible that your electronic file is not showing numerators, but the hard copy print does show them?

    I ask because I believe I found a print representation of the text you are transcribing that includes your missing numerators. The following link leads to an electronic representation of what appears to be part of the text you are transcribing.

    I found the site above by doing a Google search for "3. write the number on a place value chart. Then write it in expanded form using fractions or decimals to express" (with the parentheses included so that the search would be for those words exactly).

    If the above does not answer your question, please do not hesitate to let me know.

    Thank you for your time, and perseverance.


    Well, your findings certainly create concern for the entire project, yikes!
    I believe this is an online curriculum (no ISBN!) and I will check with our media center to determine in what form these materials were received. My guess is that they were printed by the specialist and submitted either electronically or hard copy print. Regardless, it doesn't make sense to me that numerators of 1 appear to be the only content missing! We will investigate ...
    Thanks so much for your very clever sleuthing, Kyle! I shall remember this technique for future conundrums 🙂


    I hope that your investigations are fruitful!

    Thank you very much for your reply.
