zero aka 0
If 0, half or 1 refers to inches, the answer is 0.
5/8 is closest to a half.
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.
Let's do the math: 1/5 = .20 0 = .00 1/2 = one half = .50 1/1 = one whole = 1.0 The distance between 1/5 and 0 is the shortest (only .20 away), and thus, 0 is the closest to 1/5.
Of the three numbers given, two fifths is closest to zero.
It's closer to one half.
Put them in the freezer and wait until frost forms on one of them. That will be the one closest to 0º C.
the second one
3/5 is closest to 1/2. Reasoning: 3/5 is equal to 0.6, which is closest to 0.5 (or 1/2) NOT 0, or 1.
It is closer to one half.
500 thousandths = 500/1000= 500 x 1/500 x 2= 1/2= halfNot only is it closest to a half, it is a half.
It's closer to zero than it is to one.
the third one
Zero. 0.5*0=0 -62,754,355,231,948,535,375.11111111112
my answer is it closer to 0
4/7 as a decimal is 0.'571428' recurring
0 and 1/2 which can also be written as 0.5 or One half
It is closer to a half.
The wording is ambiguous. If the questions means, "From what number can you subtract one-half to get a result of zero?" then the answer is one-half. (1/2) - (1/2) = 0 If the question means, "From what number can you subtract half of the number to get a result of zero?" then the answer is zero. 0 - (1/2)0 = 0
1/4 is exactly half way between 0 and 1/2.
half of 0 is .0
