How many eighths in 1 (that is, one whole)? And how many eighths will you have if you add one more eighth to those? And what's that number divided by 9? You can do this.
Three eighths minus one fourth is one eighth.
Three times one eighth is three eighths.
Three fourths is six eighths. Six eighths minus one eighth is five eighths.
No, three eighths is larger than one fourth. One fourth is equal to two eighths, and is one eighth smaller than three eighths.
Three eighths divided by 1 and one third = 9/32
Um... Three one eighth teaspoons do not equal a three fourth teaspoon. Think about it. Three one eighth teaspoons equal three-eighths and three-eighths are not equivalent to a three fourth teaspoon.
Do it in eighths: 2 and one eighth is 17 eighths, while 2 and three-quarter is 22 eighths, so the ratio is 17 to 22.
3/8 + 3/8 + 1/8 + 1/8 = 1
HOW THIS IS THREE-EIGHTHS
