Best Answer

No.

First you find 1/2 as a decimal: divide 1 by 2 and you get 0.50

Find 4/7 as a decimal: divide 4 by 7 and you get 0.57rounded

now you can find which one is greater. 0.57 is greater than 0.50 so 4/7 is greater than one half.

Alternately, you can convert both fractions so that they have the same denominator (the number at the bottom) and then you will see which is larger.

1/2 is equal to 7/14 (all we did here was multiply both the top and bottom by 7 - this keeps the fraction as representing the same amount because the relationship between the two numbers remains unchanged).

4/7 is equal to 8/14 (again here we have multiplied top and bottom by the same amount - in this case by 2). Now that we have both fractions written as fourteenths we can easily compare to see which is larger. 8/14 is larger than 7/14 and therefore 4/7 is larger than 1/2.
