The numerator is less than half of the denominator.
If the denominator is more than double the numerator, then the fraction is less than a half.
less, if it is a fraction of a half, it cannt be a whole
Every negative fraction, and every positive fraction whose numerator is half of its denominator or less, is not greater than one half.
You end up with an integer and a fraction. The integer is half of (one less than the one you started with), and the fraction is a half.
1/4 or one fourth.
If the signs of the numerator and denominator are different then the fraction is less than 0 and, therefore, obviously less than one half.If the signs are the same then if the absolute value of the numerator is less than or equal to half the absolute value of the denominator, then the fraction is less than or equal to one half.Algebraically,p/q
If the numerator is greater than or less than one half of the denominator. For example, 7/16 is less because 7 is less than half of 16.
