One quarter is two eighths, so five eighths subtract two eighths is three eighths.
One half + five eighths = nine eighths
Answer One half is the same as four eighths, so five eighths is one eighth more.
Five eighths is twenty-five percent more than one half.
One and five eighths is bigger than one and a half.
Answer = seven eighths of an inch.
one half multiplied by five eighths... 0.5 * 0.635 = 0.3175 OR 1/2 * 5/8 = 5/16
1½ = Twelve eighths so the answer is seven-eighths
One and one eighths.
Half of one and a quarter is five eighths (5/8).
five-eights is one-eigtht larger than one-half...which, after converting to a common denominator, is four-eights.
The result is one half (=1/2)
One fourth is considerably less than five eighths. To convert fourths into eighths, you can multiply the fraction 1/4 by 2/2 and get 2/8. It should be apparent that two eighths is a lot less than five eighths. Less than half, in fact.
One and a half is twelve eights.plus five eights, is seventeen eights. That is two and one eighth in total, or 2.125 in decimal.
No one-half equals four-eighths so that means seven-eighths is greater than one-half(four eighths)
It is: 1.5 -5/8 = 7/8
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
