The Egyptian Fractions of One problem (EFO), asks the following question: Given a positive integer n, how many ways can 1 be expressed as the sum of n non-increasing unit fractions? In this paper, we verify a result concerning the EFO problem for n=8, and show the computational complexity of the problem can be severely lessened by new theorems concerning the structure of solutions to the EFO problem.
