Converting this to eights, it becomes: 2 eights + 4 eights + 1 eight = 7 eights.

They are equal!

2 fourths is a half. (Seven eights minus a half) 7 x 8 - 0.5 = 55.5 (Seven eights minus a half) 7/8 - 1/2 = 3/8

Four Eighths are equal to 1/2.

.375 or three eights ( 3/8 )

Yes. three eights plus one eight equals 4 eights, or one half

A fraction between one half (1/2) and one fourth (1/4) is three eights (3/8).

A fourth of a half is an eighth, a half of a fourth is still an eighth. They're both equal.

One half (1/2) is greater than three eights (3/8) because one half is equal to four eights (4/8).

No, one fourth is less than one half.

One half squared equals one fourth because when you multiply one half by one half you get one fourth. This is the equivalent of saying that half of one half is one fourth.

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. ^^"
