# What is a half times a half?

Simply a Rose to brighten your day,         And maybe lessen the cares in your way;         And also, too, to help you to know,         That in knowing you, many others grow!

"Sounds like someone just got their homework done for them."

But none of them explained the how of it to her.

When you say 1/2 times 1/2 you multiply the top part of the fractions (in this case 1 x 1) and multiply the bottom part of the fractions (in this case 2 x 2). You then put the top result (1 x 1 = 1) over the bottom result (2 x 2 = 4) getting the answer of 1/4.

saying times is like saying "of". as in 1/2 times 1 is 1/2 of 1, which is 1/2 so 1/2 times 1/2 is the same as 1/2 of 1/2, which is 1/4

take a cake and cut it in half. Take half of the half, and you have a quarter of the original cake.

a fourth. The woman who said a whole is wrong. a half PLUS a half is a whole. A half TIMES a half is a fourth. Correct answer: 1/4. Trust me.

snaps, everyone ignore my comment. I don't know what I was thinking. I probably thought it said half times a half. whateverrr
