yes

yea

Answer One half is the same as four eighths, so five eighths is one eighth more.

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.
