    You have a pizza.

    You divide the pizza into 8 slices.

    Then 1 slice is 1/8 of that pizza.

    If you divide each slice in half, then that makes 16 slices, right? Now each of those slices is 1/16 of the pizza.

    So half of 1/8 = 1/16

    Half of 5/8 = 5/16

    (5/8) divided by 2

    = (5/8)(1/2) = 5/16

    5/16. Divide the denominator by 2.

      You have to multiply the denominator by 2, if you divide it, it would be 5/4
