There are infinitely many fractions between a half and one. One of them is 2/3

When you have fractions with like denominators, the larger is the one with the larger numerator.

When the fractions are converted to equivalent fractions with the same denominator the one with the larger numerator is the larger fraction.

Neither is larger.

when 2 fractions have the same denomenator, the one the larger numerator is greater.

In order to compare two fractions, you have to convert them so that they have the same denominator, which is to say, they are the same kind of fraction, whether that is thirds, quarters, fifths, etc. Let's say that I want to compare 2/9 with 1/5. I can make them both into 45ths. Multiply the 2/9 by 5/5 and you get 10/45. Multiply the 1/5 by 9/9 and you get 9/45. Now you can compare, because 10/45 is obvious 1/45 larger than 9/45. In the example given, since both fractions are less than a half, the larger one is closer to a half. If I had two fractions that were both larger than a half, then the smaller one is closer to a half. What if I have a fraction that is larger than a half and another fraction that is smaller than a half, and I want to know which is closer to a half? I would have to convert all 3 fractions (half is also a fraction) so that they have common denominators, then I can easily subtract a candidate fraction from a half, or subtract a half from it, and see which gives the biggest difference.

One half.

No - one half plus one half equals one.

Three fourths is bigger than one half.

23 and one half is larger.

It is 1/2

1 half

One half

one half.

yes. When you are working with fractions like this, the smaller the denominator, the larger the fraction.

1/2 is larger.

five sixths is larger than a half.

Whatever two fractions you name, no matter how close together they are, I can always name another fraction between them. In fact, there are an infinite number of fractions between any two fractions, no matter how close together they are. That goes for three-fourths and one-half.

Subtract one from the other.If the answer is positive then the first is larger,if the answer is negative, then the second is larger.Rational numbers are numbers that can be expressed as fractions whereas irrational numbers can't be expressed as fractions.

one and two sixth's

They are two proper rational fractions.

There are an infinite number of fractions that lie between any two fractions. In this case 13/24 is one example.

You half to times them by 4 and add 2
