Sherry had 7/8 of a cup of sugar in her kitchen, and then she used 1/2 of a cup of sugar to make sweet tea. She used what fraction of her sugar to make sweet tea?

She had 7/8 of a cup to start..... she used 1/5 of  a cup

what is the fraction 1/2     of  7/8

 

1/2 / 7/8 =  1/2 * 8/7   = 8/14 = 4/7   of 7/8 of a cup  

                                                                          4/7 * 7/8 = 28/56 = 1/2
