three fourths minus one half?

  • ¾ – ½ = ¼

    There are two ways to solve this problem.

    The first way would be to convert ¾ and ½ into equivalent fractions, and subtract them.

    However, it would probably be more easier if you completed the problem by converting the fractions into decimals. ¾ is the same as 0.75 and ½ is the same as 0.50.

    0.75 – 0.50 = 0.25.

    Now, you have to convert your difference back into a fraction. 0.25 is the same as ¼, the correct answer.

    Also, since it takes a long time to receive answers from Yahoo! Answers, it would probably be easier if you used a fraction calculator. Here is a link: http://tinyurl.com/online-fraction-calculator.

  • Heck of a joke partner.

  • 1/4 (or 0.25). This is an easy question because 1/2 is equal to 2/4. 3/4-2/4=1/4

  • one quarter.

  • one quarter

    3/4 – 1/2

    =3/4 – 2/4

    =1/4
