One quarter is two eighths, so five eighths subtract two eighths is three eighths.
Answer One half is the same as four eighths, so five eighths is one eighth more.
One and five eighths is bigger than one and a half.
Five eighths is twenty-five percent more than one 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
Half of one and a quarter is five eighths (5/8).
One half + five eighths = nine eighths
3/8 minus 1/2 is -1/8
