Best Answer

Nine tenths is greater than one half. If you have a pie and you took half of it away you would have another half of a pie left. If you took nine tenths of a pie away then you would be left with a tiny sliver. Another way to solve it is to make the denominator into ten so if you made one half into tenths it would be five tenths and everyone knows nine is greater than five.
