    If you say "um quarto, um quinto ou um oitavo", você está querendo dizer 1/4, 1/5 and so on.
    A half (1/2) is said like "meio", e não "um meio".
    Smaller parts are preceded by "um", e.g. "um terço, um quarto...";
    Portions smaller than 1/0: 1/11 = "um onze avos, um doze avos...";

     

    I know "fracionário", that means a fractional number or portion.

    The correct form is fracionário. A part of the all.
