my answer is it closer to 0

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

It is closer to a half.

A half.

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

closer to zero

It's closer to one half.

5/8 is closer to 1/2

One fourth (.25) is closer to zero than one half (.5).

neither exactly half way between both

1/2 is the same distance from 1 as from 0. It is not closer to either 1 or 0.

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

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.

7/15 is closer to 1/2 than it is 0. so it rounds to 1/2.

1 over infinity

0 over 6

Let's say that you are rounding 2/5. You find half of 5 which is 2.5. Then you see if 2 is closer to 0, 2.5/5, or 1. It is closer to 2.5, so you would say that 2.5 is half of five, so your answer is 1/2. If you are doing 1/7, 1 is obviously closer to 0, so your answer would be 0.

0.67 is 0.67 away from zero. 0.67 is 0.17 away from one half. 0.67 is 0.33 away from one. 0.67 is closer to 1/2

2/5 is less than half so would be closer to 0 than 1.

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.

0 1.5-1.5=0

1/7 in decimal form is approximately 0.143 0.143 is closer to 0.0 than 0.5 or 1. The answer is 0.

2/5 is closer to 0.

0.25 = 1/4 = 2/8 + 1/8 = 3/8 which is less than half, so it's closer to zero.
