What is the half of $1\frac{1}{2}$ cups?

Steve Hirano

It's $\frac{3}{4}$ cups.
$\frac{1}{2}×1\frac{1}{2}=\frac{1}{2}×\frac{3}{2}=\frac{3}{4}$

$1\frac{1}{2}$ can be written as $\frac{3}{2}$
So,
$\frac{1}{2}×\frac{3}{2}=\frac{3}{4}$
Or it can be written also as 0.75.

Half of 1 is $\frac{1}{2}$ and half of $\frac{1}{2}$ is $\frac{1}{4}$, so:
$\frac{1}{2}+\frac{1}{4}=\frac{2}{4}+\frac{1}{4}=\frac{3}{4}$
