How can you tell whether a fraction is greater than or less than 1 half?

If two times the numerator is less than the denominator, the fraction is less than half. If two times the numerator is equal to the denominator, the fraction is equal to a half. If two times the numerator is greater than the denominator, the fraction is greater than half.


How do you know if a fraction is between 0 and 1 or a half and 1?

A proper fraction is between 0 and 1. A proper fraction has the numerator less than the denominator. The numerator is the top number, and the denominator is the bottom number. If the fraction has a numerator, which is half of the denominator, then it is half and anything with a numerator greater then half the denominator but not greater than the denominator is between 1/2 and 1.

How coule you use the relationship between the numerator and denominator of fractions equivalent to one-half to determine if a fraction is greater than one-half?

In fractions equivalent to 1/2, the numerator is half of the denominator. Any fraction where the numerator is less than half of the denominator, like 19/40, is less than 1/2. Any fraction where the numerator is more than half of the denominator, like 49/96, is greater than 1/2. That's also a quick way to compare fractions. 4/9 is less than 5/8.

How do you know that a fraction is closest to one half?

In order to compare two fractions, you have to convert them so that they have the same denominator, which is to say, they are the same kind of fraction, whether that is thirds, quarters, fifths, etc. Let's say that I want to compare 2/9 with 1/5. I can make them both into 45ths. Multiply the 2/9 by 5/5 and you get 10/45. Multiply the 1/5 by 9/9 and you get 9/45. Now you can compare, because 10/45 is obvious 1/45 larger than 9/45. In the example given, since both fractions are less than a half, the larger one is closer to a half. If I had two fractions that were both larger than a half, then the smaller one is closer to a half. What if I have a fraction that is larger than a half and another fraction that is smaller than a half, and I want to know which is closer to a half? I would have to convert all 3 fractions (half is also a fraction) so that they have common denominators, then I can easily subtract a candidate fraction from a half, or subtract a half from it, and see which gives the biggest difference.
