Ordinal numbers are used to express denominations of fractions: "one third" is written as un terzo and "five sevenths" as cinque setimi. "One half" may be translated as mezzo, mezza, una metà, or la metà. Take a look at how mathematical operations are described in Italian:

Addizione: 2 + 3 = 5 (due più tre fa cinque)
Sottrazione: 9 - 3 = 6 (nove meno tre fa sei)
Moltiplicazione: 4 x 2 = 8 (quattro per due fa otto)
Divisione: 10 ÷ 2 = 5 (dieci diviso due fa cinque)
