If two times the numerator is less than the denominator, the fraction is less than half. If two times the numerator is equal to the denominator, the fraction is equal to a half. If two times the numerator is greater than the denominator, the fraction is greater than half.

If the numerator is greater than or less than one half of the denominator. For example, 7/16 is less because 7 is less than half of 16.

You can tell if a fraction is less than 1% if the denominator of the fraction has its decimal place moved to the right 2 times and is less than the numerator it is less than 1 percent.

If the signs of the numerator and denominator are different then the fraction is less than 0 and, therefore, obviously less than one half.If the signs are the same then if the absolute value of the numerator is less than or equal to half the absolute value of the denominator, then the fraction is less than or equal to one half.Algebraically,p/q

If the denominator is more than double the numerator, then the fraction is less than a half.

less, if it is a fraction of a half, it cannt be a whole

If the fraction has a greater numerator than the denominator than the fraction is greater than one If the fraction has a numerator less than the denominator than the fraction is less than one If the numerator and the denominator are the same numbers than the fraction is equal to one **The numerator is the top number; the denominator is the bottom number**

If the fraction is less than half, round down. If the fraction is half or greater, round up.

You end up with an integer and a fraction. The integer is half of (one less than the one you started with), and the fraction is a half.

Find out what half the denominator is and then compare it to the numerator. for example: for 4/7, 3.5 is half of 7 and 4 > 3.5, so 4/7 is greater than one half.

When its numerator (top number) is more than half its denominator (bottom number).

If the numerator (top number) is smaller than the denominator (bottom number), then the value of the fraction is less than ' 1 '.

If numerator (top number) is less than denominator (bottom number), fraction is less than 1. If numerator is more than denominator, fraction is more than 1. If top and bottom are the same number, fraction is equal to 1.

5/8.
