(you should find it using mathematical analysis,and show your logic,don't use any

My solution:

I would begin with:

$$\displaystyle \frac{9}{12}$$

since this is the largest addend possible. This leaves $$\displaystyle \frac{1}{4}$$.

Observing that:

$$\displaystyle \frac{1}{4}=\frac{17}{68}=\frac{2\cdot5+7}{68}= \frac{5}{34}+\frac{7}{68}$$

We now have:

$$\displaystyle \frac{9}{12}+\frac{5}{34}+\frac{7}{68}=1$$
