4/6ths plus 1/2 = 9/6ths or: 1 & 1/2

1.5

Four, because 4/8 = 1/2 There are obviously 8 1/8ths in a whole so half of that amount is obviously 4 1/8ths, which can be written as either 4/8ths or more correctly as 1/2.

1/2 of 3/8 = 3/16

12 and 1 half minus 3 and 5 6ths = 8 2/3

It is four 8ths which is also one half.

1 whole and 1 8th

You have to find the common denominator for the fractions, so multiply the "half" (2) by the "thirds" (3). These two numbers multiplied with give 6 as a common denominator. Then multiply the 1 by the 3, which will give 3/6ths, and the 2 by the other 2, which will give 4/6ths. Hmmm! it seems that 4/6ths is greater than 3/6ths, so you have to add a whole to the 3/6ths to make a big enough fraction to subtract. Doing that will give you 9/6ths and you can subtract the 4/6ths. So the answer would be 5/6ths. Try it.

1 and 3/8ths is the same as 8/8ths + 3/8ths. This is summed to 11/8ths. Half of that would be 11/16ths.

4/6ths plus 1/2 = 9/6ths or: 1 & 1/2

Yes. One half is 3/6ths and one third is only 2/6ths. In another way, one half is 0.50 and one third is 0.33.....

Yes because 4 8ths is equal to 1 half and 5 8ths is beigger thana half

Yes it is... one half = three sixths.
