# What is half of 1 and 3/4?

The multiplication of fractions starts with the multiplication of the given numerators, followed by the multiplication of the denominators.

## Answer: Half of 1 is expressed as 1/2 and the half of 3/4 is expressed as 3/8.

Let us find the half of 1 and 3/4.

**Explanation:**

We can write half as 1/2 in the form of a fraction.

Hence,

Half of 1 can be written as 1/2 of 1

Half of 3/4 can be written as 1/2 of 3/4

We multiply fractions with the help of the following steps:

- Multiply the numerators.
- Multiply the denominators.
- Reduce the resultant fraction to its lowest terms.

Now,

1/2 × 1 = 1/2

1/2 × 3/4 = (1 × 3) / (2 × 4) = 3/8
