3/8 is exactly halfway between one half and one fourth

three eighths

The concept of divisibility loses all meaning or relevance when considering fractions because any fraction is divisible by any non-zero fraction.

No. :) Two eighths can be simplified one more time to make one fourth because in simplifying your trying to find the smallest version of something. that something, in this case, is "two eighths" and the smallest version, in this case, is "one fourth". A way to get that smallest version is by dividing the "two eighths" by two until it cannot be divided anymore without ending up with either a decimal or a fraction. You want those whole numbers. If you were to divide one fourth by two, you would end up with 0.5 over two. And 0.5 is obviously not a whole number Thus, one-fourth, (or one quarter) is the simplest form of two eighths Hope it helped.

The fraction that represents one half of one fourth is one eighth.

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.

(1/4 + 7/8) / 2 = (2/8 + 7/8) / 2 = (9/8) / 2 = 9/16

Two eighths equal a fourth.

No, three eighths is larger than one fourth. One fourth is equal to two eighths, and is one eighth smaller than three eighths.

the difference between them is 4 and 5/8.

three eighths

One fourth is equivalent to two eighths so total is nine eighths ie one and one-eighth.
