Half of 1 and 3/4


Question: 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: The half of 1 and 3/4 are 1/2 and 3/8 respectively.

Let us find the half of 1 and 3/4.

Explanation:

We can write half in fraction as 1/2

Hence, 

half of 1 can be written as 1/2 of 1 and 

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

To multiply fractions through the following steps:

  1. Multiply the numerators.
  2. Multiply the denominators.
  3. Reduce the resultant fraction to its lowest terms.

Now,

1/2 × 1 = 1/2

1/2 × 3/4 = (1 × 3) / (2 × 4) = 3/8

Thus, the half of 1 and 3/4 are 1/2 and 3/8 respectively.
