It need not be. The numbers 1/2 and (-1/2) are both fractions less than 1 but their quotient is -1, which is less than both the fractions.

3/4 is greater than a half.

Three fourths is bigger than one half.

Yes

In order to compare two fractions, you have to convert them so that they have the same denominator, which is to say, they are the same kind of fraction, whether that is thirds, quarters, fifths, etc. Let's say that I want to compare 2/9 with 1/5. I can make them both into 45ths. Multiply the 2/9 by 5/5 and you get 10/45. Multiply the 1/5 by 9/9 and you get 9/45. Now you can compare, because 10/45 is obvious 1/45 larger than 9/45. In the example given, since both fractions are less than a half, the larger one is closer to a half. If I had two fractions that were both larger than a half, then the smaller one is closer to a half. What if I have a fraction that is larger than a half and another fraction that is smaller than a half, and I want to know which is closer to a half? I would have to convert all 3 fractions (half is also a fraction) so that they have common denominators, then I can easily subtract a candidate fraction from a half, or subtract a half from it, and see which gives the biggest difference.

You find the common denominator for both fractions and which ever has the highest numerator is greater.

Yes. Look at the denominator (10). If the denominators of both fractions are equal than go with the higher numerator as the greater number

There are an infinite number of both fractions and whole numbers.

Unfortanitly,No

B is half a tone higher than B flat

That only happens if they're both improper fractions, i.e. greater than ' 1 '.

2/3 x 3/5

There are infinitely many fractions between a half and one. One of them is 2/3

1/4,1/8,1/16...

you round fractions by rounding up or down, you can decide to do this when you look at the numerator and decide if it is half of the denominator, if it is half or more than half, you round up. If it is less than half you round down. Another way you can round fractions is dividing the top number by the bottom number (with a calculator), then if the decimal part is 5 or more, round up! (if the decimal is less than 5, round down.)

a quarter or one fourth or 0.25 are all the same thing and are thess than one half. But many other nuumbers and fractions are also less than one half.

If the denominator is more than double the numerator, then the fraction is less than a half.

2/3 or 4/5 or 93/100 There are an infinite number of fractions greater than a half

More than half.

The possibilities of the division of numbers are infinite. Like colors, numbers are endless. Examples of fractions less than half are 1/3, 1/4, 1/16, 2/16, 3/16 etc.

In fractions equivalent to 1/2, the numerator is half of the denominator. Any fraction where the numerator is less than half of the denominator, like 19/40, is less than 1/2. Any fraction where the numerator is more than half of the denominator, like 49/96, is greater than 1/2. That's also a quick way to compare fractions. 4/9 is less than 5/8.

Equivalent fractions must have equal denominators, and this is done by setting the denominators of both fractions to their smallest common multiple. So, say a person wants to compare two thirds and one half, they would set both denominators to six. Two thirds would become four sixths and one half would become three sixths. Thus, two thirds is bigger than one half.

If the fractions are both proper fractions ... equivalent to less than 1 ... thenthat's always true ... the product is always less than either factor.

Any fraction with a numerator of one and a denominator greater than two.

Regular fractions are the fractions with a numerator that is less than the denominator and irregular fractions are fractions with a denominator less than the numerator.
