no two thirds is equal to four sixths no two thirds is equal to four sixths. Two thirds is 4 times larger than 1 sixth No one sixth is smaller. Whenever you do fractions alwaysthink of pies. Like for example you make two pies you cut one pie in six parts, and the other in three parts which slices are bigger. Or also you eat 2 of the 3 slices of one pie and 1 of the 6 slice in the other, which pie is emptier. The pie that is emptier had the bigger slices so therefore that fraction you ate from the emptier pie is bigger than the other fraction.

No, 2/3 is more than 1/2

This can be shown if you change the fractions so they have the same denominator:

2/3 = 4/6

1/2 = 3/6

... 4/6 is greater than 3/6 therefore 2/3 is greater than 1/2

What is four sixths rounded to the nearest half?

Four sixths, which is equal to two thirds, if rounded to the nearest half is approximately one half. In terms of a decimal analysis, two thirds is very close to .67, and .67 - .5 = .17, so two thirds is just .17 more than a half, but if we compare it to the number one, two thirds is fully a third (or .333...) less than one. And that is more than .17 so two thirds is closer to a half than it is to one.
