one half because 4 eighths would be a half

What is seven eights plus 2 and a half?

The final answer would be three and three-eighths. Here's how to solve it mentally.You have to set their denominators [bottom numbers] equal. So, keep seven eights, since two ["half"] goes into eight, but you must make 2 and a half into 2 and four eights, because four is half of eight. Pretend for a minute that the four eights isn't there. So, 2 and seven eights. Then, add one from the four eights, so that it will now be 3., and so that the four eights is now three eights. So, 3 and three eights.Sorry. I'm not very good at explaining, but I hope that helped. ^^"

How many sixths are the same as three eights?

None. Three eighths in decimal form is .375 . You obtain the decimal form of a fraction by dividing the numerator (3) by the denominator (8). For one fraction to be equivalent, or "the same" as another, it needs to be exactly the same in decimal form as the other. Two sixths is .333 in decimal form, which is less than .375, meaning the answer is more than two sixths. Three sixths is .500, which is higher than .375, meaning the answer is less than three sixths. So the equivalent of three eighths in sixths lies somewhere in between two sixths and three sixths, but there is no exact number of sixths that is the equivalent of three eighths. To illustrate how a successful fractional equivalent would look, ask how many sixteenths are the same as three eighths. Five sixteenths is .313, less than .375, and six sixteenths is .375 exactly. You recall that three eighths is also .375. Therefore, you can conclude that six sixteenths is equivalent, or the same as, three eighths.
