Q: How many halves are there in six fourths?

Write your answer...

There are three halves in six fourths because 6/4 reduces to 3/2.

6

Five halves divided by five fourths = 2

Two halves is the same as a whole, in other words two halves equals one. In symbols, 2/2=1. So the question is how many fourths equal 1? The answer is 4/4 =1.

half of six is three -so there are six halves in three.

five halves = 5/2 = 10/4 3/4 into 10/4 = 3 with 1/4 remaining as 10 = (3x3) + 1

3 halves

12

Six.

Three of them.

12

Two of them because 2/2 = 4/4

Six of them

24 of them.

Six fourths = one and a half.

2 halves

3 and 1/3 of them.

Six of them.

3

6/8 simplifies to 3/4, so there are three fourths in six eighths.

An estimate of this should lead directly to an answer. Six is equal to six times one. That's kinda obvious, but we need to look at the one. One half will go into that one about two times, so there are about two halves in a one. Since there are six ones in a six and two halves in a one there must be six times two halves in a six. That's about twelve halves. Six is equal to six times one or six ones. There are two one halves in a one, or two halves in a one. As there are two halves in a one and there are six ones in a six, there are two times six halves in a six. There are about twelve halves in a six.

six and three fourths as a decimal = 6.75

Six.
