Is the hyphen in fraction necessary or not?

Dear all, I've read through lots of pages on how to read fractions in English on the Internet. Here's my questions: do we have to add the hyphen between numerator and denominator?

Your help is highly appreciated.

    The symbol with a 3 above a hyphen (or line) above a 4 is the fraction three-quarters. If you leave out the hyphen (or line) it's the musical symbol for waltz time.
