There is no possible answer. For any given fraction, half that fraction is another fraction and it will be closer to 0. And then half of that will be closer still, and then half of that ... . Hope you get the idea.

1/4 is exactly half way between 0 and 1/2.

It is closer to a half.

3/8 is closer to a half. 3/8 is one away from a half therefore 3/8 is closer to 1/2

One quarter (1/4) is the fraction that is half of one half (1/2 x 1/2 = 1/4).

If you take half of the denominator and the numerator is more than that then it is closer to 1 than zero.

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.

Half of 1 as a fraction is 1/2

It is closer to 1/2

1/8

There is none. There will always be a fraction closer to 1 then the last.

One whole = 6/6. the difference between 6/6 and 4/6 is 2/6. 1/2 = 3/6. The difference between 4/6 and 3/6 is 1/6, so it is closer to one half.

Neither!!

It is closer to a half. 9/16=0.5625

1 over 2 is a half as a fraction

1/4

One half.

1 half

If you have half of something and you cut it in half again, you get the fraction of 1/4.

There are many. IT is easier to say such a fraction when you compare. If you compare 45/80 and 35/80, definitely 45/80 is a closer fraction to 1 than 35/80. Similarly, 34/37 is closer than 67/55.

One half percent as a fraction is 1/200

1 over infinity
