# How could you use the relationship between the numerator and denominator of fractions equivalent to one-half to determine if a fraction is less than one-half?

If a fraction is equivalent to one-half then the numerator is always half the denominator. Or, the double the numerator is the denominator.

So, given any other fraction, p/q,

if 2p < q then the fraction < 1/2

if 2p = q then the fraction = 1/2

if 2p > q then the fraction > 1/2
