$\frac{3}{4} \mathmr{and} 0.75$

#### Explanation:

Method 1:

Average the two numbers.

$\frac{\frac{1}{2} + 1}{2} = \frac{\frac{3}{2}}{2} = \frac{3}{4}$

Method 2:

Write both numbers with a common denominator.

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

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

The number halfway between $\frac{2}{4}$ and $\frac{4}{4}$ is $\frac{3}{4}$.
