    1/4 = ?/12

    I am looking at an example in the presentation of UEB Technical Higher Learning Math (2019 NBA Conference) and they put a dot 46 before the 34 (fraction line). Is this correct?  I cannot find an example in the Guidelines.






    So I went to UEB Online and downloaded the pdf's for math. Please take a look at #6 on the attached page 57. I have also included my braille to see if I am on the right track.
