Estimate the difference for the following operation rounded to the nearest 1/8

__Estimate the fraction 3/4 using 1/8 as our benchmark:____Display the fraction bar for 3/4__The lower range is 5/8 and the upper range is 6/8

The halfway point is denoted below:

Therefore, our range is 5/8 < 11/16 < 6/8

__Compare our fraction to the halfway point__3/4 ≥ 11/16, we round up to

**6/8**

__Estimate the fraction 1/2 using 1/8 as our benchmark:____Display the fraction bar for 1/2__The lower range is 3/8 and the upper range is 4/8

The halfway point is denoted below:

Therefore, our range is 3/8 < 7/16 < 4/8

__Compare our fraction to the halfway point__1/2 ≥ 7/16, we round up to

**4/8**

Estimating, we have 6/8 - 4/8

Our estimated answer is

**2/8**__Display the fraction bar for 2/8__
