Well, what is fifty percent of 3? (1 1/2, yet put the totality 1 to the side for now, we"ll require it again in ~ the end)

What is fifty percent of 3/4? (first, multiply the denominator and the numerator by 2) you obtain 6/8. (3 x 2 = 6, 4x 2 = 8)

Divide the numerator by 2 = 3/8 (6 / 2 = 3)

Next, discover the common denominator of 1/2 and 3/8: main point both the top and also the bottom the 1/2 through 4: you gain 4/8. (Why? since whatever you do to the bottom, you need to do come the top!)

Now, include 4/8 (from the 1/2) and also 3/8 (from half of the 3/4): you gain 7/8

Now, you space left with the 1 indigenous the first line wherein we split 3 by 2 (we already dealt v the leftover 1/2) add this to your fraction.

You are left with 1 7/8 (1 + 7/8)

This might be a round-about means of detect the answer, but it works in a pinch!
