with 15/30 as exactly half, the answer would be that 17/30 is closer to 1/2.

Write down your numbers:

0, 1/2 and 17/30

Multiply them all by 30 to get rid of denominators:

0, 15, 17

So is 17 closer to 0 or 15?

Since it is closer to 15 (bigger than both 0 *and* 15), it is clearly closer to 1/2 rather than 0.

Answer:

1/2

1/2 = 15/30

0 = 0/30

Does that help?
