Best Answer

A half is 1/2. The numerator is 1 and the denominator is 2.

The numerator and denominator can both be multiplied by the same number and the result will equivalent to a half although it will be a different fraction.

So 1/2 = 2/4 = 3/6 = 4/8 = 5/10........and so on

1/2 = 4/8

so 7/8 = 4/8 + 3/8

As 8/8 (or 2/2, 3/3, 4/4 etc) = 1, then 7/8 = 1 - 1/8

7/8 is therefore 1/8 less than 1 but is 3/8 more than 1/2.

7 over 8 = 7/8 = .875 1 and a half = 1.5 = 3/2 = 1.5 .875 - 1.5 = -.625 or (this is the way i do it) you change 1/2 to 4/8 so it becomes 7/8-4/8. so 7-4 is 3. so the answer is 3/8

81/2 − 7/8 = 75/8

5 over 16 is half of 5 over 8

5/8 is greater than half (4/8) while 7/20 is less than half (10/20). So without doing any other calculations one can say that 5/8 is bigger.
