# Which fraction is between 1/8 and 9/16 on a number line?

Dec 16, 2016

$= \frac{11}{32}$

#### Explanation:

There are infinitely many fractions between these two, so I will assume you mean exactly half way between them.

One method is to average them, which involves adding them together and then dividing by 2.
You need a common denominator first.

$\left(\frac{1}{8} + \frac{9}{16}\right) \div 2$

$= \frac{2 + 9}{16} \div 2$

$= \frac{11}{16} \times \frac{1}{2}$

$= \frac{11}{32}$
