9/8  - 5/8   = 4/8   = 1/2 mile

Travels 1/2 mile more on second day.

1 1/8 - 5/8 = 1/2 or 0.5 miles farther from the 1st day...Answer//

Find the difference between 5/8 and 1 1/8

Convert 1 1/8 into an improper fraction

1 1/8 = 9/8

9/8 - 5/8 = 4/8 = 1/2 mile

4/8 of a mile or 1/2 mile.

• 2 months ago

5/8 = 5/8

1 1/8 = 9/8

9 - 5 = 4 and 4/8 can be reduced to 1/2.

You could say he travelled either 4/8 or 1/2 of a mile farther on the second day.

1 1/8 = 8/8 + 1/8 = 9/8 mile

9/8 - 5/8 = 4/8 mile

This is also 1/2 mile when reduced.
