# How do you find the fraction between two fractions 1/4 and 3/5?

Mar 2, 2018

$\frac{1}{2}$ is just one possible answer.

#### Explanation:

Well we can probably better visualize this if we convert each fraction to a decimal.

$\frac{1}{4} \to 0.25$

$\frac{3}{5} \to 0.6$

So now we ask ourselves, what decimal(s) is in between $0.25$ and $0.6$?

Well, in reality there are infinitely many but that's a topic for another day. All we need is one decimal:

Here's one!

$0.5$ is in between $0.25$ and $0.6$

Now we just convert $0.5$ into a fraction and that's $\frac{1}{2}$!
