Three eights. There are four eights in one half.

no, three eights is one eighth less than one half. Imagine it as a pizza with eight slices. If you take 3, there is still one more piece left in your half.

1/2 * 3/8 = 3/16

Three fourths is bigger than one half.

The final answer would be three and three-eighths. Here's how to solve it mentally.You have to set their denominators [bottom numbers] equal. So, keep seven eights, since two ["half"] goes into eight, but you must make 2 and a half into 2 and four eights, because four is half of eight. Pretend for a minute that the four eights isn't there. So, 2 and seven eights. Then, add one from the four eights, so that it will now be 3., and so that the four eights is now three eights. So, 3 and three eights.Sorry. I'm not very good at explaining, but I hope that helped. ^^"
