# What is half of a half? What is half of that?

Mar 3, 2018

The answers are $\frac{1}{4}$ and $\frac{1}{8}$.

#### Explanation:

Half of a number can be found by dividing the number by $2$:

1/2 ÷ 2 =

$\frac{1}{2} \times \frac{1}{2} =$

$\frac{1}{4}$

1/4 ÷ 2 =

$\frac{1}{4} \times \frac{1}{2} =$

$\frac{1}{8}$

Hope that helps :)
