one half because 4 eighths would be 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. ^^"

Three sixths is a half, which would be the same as four eighths

You mean eights. For each whole number/unit, there would be eight, so five times eight would be 40, then you have five more eighths, so 45, all told.

Not entirely sure, but wouldn't it be 1/8?

The meaning of the question is ambiguous. Five eights is 5*8 = 40 Two eighths (?) is 2/8 = 1/4 = 0.25 So the sum would be 40.25 Alternatively five eights plus two eights = seven eights = 7*8 = 56

Three aces and two eights is a full house. Three Aces and two nines would win. As would three aces and two kickers 10 or higher.

3 eights would be 24. Dividing by 4, you will get 6.

That would be three eighths of a cup.

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.

Seven eighths equals sixty-three seventy-seconds.

3/8

Yes, if you had eight apples and you gave someone seven of them you would only have one left. However if you had eight apples and you gave someone three of them you would still have five apples left.

Um... Three one eighth teaspoons do not equal a three fourth teaspoon. Think about it. Three one eighth teaspoons equal three-eighths and three-eighths are not equivalent to a three fourth teaspoon.

Two eighths simplifies to one quarter, also known as 25% or 0.25 it is written as 2/8 and means that say for example i have eaten two eights of my pizza and it has 8 slices you would have eaten 2 out of the 8 slices.

Eight eighths, or 8/8, does not equal to two, it equals to 1. 8/8 reduced would be 1/1, or simply, 1.

Two eighths, or one fourth, as a percent is 25%. You can calculate it by multiplying the decimal in this case 2/8 by 100. It would look like this 2/8x100=25.

It would be 3/8 of an inch long or wide.

Well three-fourths in decimal would be 0.75 and three-eights would be 0.375 so three-fourths is larger.

It would be about 0.37, or 0.38 if you round up.

three fourths. WHO WOULD ASK WHAT THAT IS? SERIOUSLY?!

This would depend on how many cards are in the hand overall

The answer would be 6 and 3 fourths in the US - or six and three-quarters in the UK. That's 6 and 3/4 or 6.75
