Not quite in this situation. The easy way is this. If 1 bag weighs 1/4 of a pound, how much does half a bag weigh?

1/2?

Nope, 1/2 is bigger, remember that the bigger the denominator, the smaller the number.

I'll help you here, to take half of a fraction you double the number on the bottom, so what is the new denominator?

Okay here, one half of a bag weighs 1/8th, one bag weighs 2/8ths, put them together and you get 3/8ths. So your answer is 3/8ths. Hope I helped. :)
