Best Answer

Two halves equal: One whole.

Minus one quarter from the 'one whole', equals: Three fourths

If you think of it in u.s. money, two halves .50 cent pieces, equals a total of one whole dollar. If you take a quarter, 1/4 away, you have 3 quarters left. Since 4 quarters make up a whole dollar, by taking away one of the quarters, you are left with 3 quarters. In fraction terms, your left with: 3/4
