One quarter is two eighths, so five eighths subtract two eighths is three eighths.

One and a half is twelve eights.plus five eights, is seventeen eights. That is two and one eighth in total, or 2.125 in decimal.

Expressed as a decimal, this is equal to 1.125.

Yes, seven eighths is greater than five tenths. Five tenths, or one half, expressed in eighths would be four eighths. Since seven is greater than four, seven eighths is greater than four eighths (or five tenths). One easy way to know is use a calculator and do the division (seven divided by eight, and five divided by ten); in decimal form the higher value may be more quickly apparent when compared.

Simple! One eighth is the same as 0.125 so multiply thar by five(0.625)and make it negative A: -0.625
