8 and one quarter add 8 and a half = 16
five-eighths (5/8) of a cup. To find half of one and a quarter we need to find half of one and then half of a quarter and then add them togerther. Half of one is a half. Half of a quarter is one eighth. So the answer is ahalf and an eighth. 1/2 + 1/8. Now one half is the same as four eighths so we have 4/8 + 1/8. Four eighths plus one eighth is five eighths. = 5/8
Half of one and a quarter is five eighths (5/8).
They are equal. 1/2x1/4=1/8 and 1/4x1/2=1/8
"half the half" is one quarter. One quarter = 1/4 One and a half = 11/2 = 3/2 One quarter of 1 and a half = 1/4 x 3/2 = 3/8 So, half the half of one and a half = three eighths
1/8 of a cup
You multiply one quarter (1/4) by one half (1/2). So, 1*1=1, 4*2=8, so your answer is 1/8, or one eighth.
When you halve a quatity in a division, it's equivalent to doubling the divider. In other words, one half is written as 1/2, and one quarter is 1/4. So half of a quarter cup would be one-eighths of a cup (1/8).
