It's technically correct but you should reduce the fraction to 3/4.
That's the fraction that is *exactly* halfway between which you can find by taking the average of the two fractions:
(5/8 + 7/8) / 2
= (12/8) / 2
= (3/2) / 2

When generating a Farey series, (see link), we find that
(a + c)/(b + d) is always between a/b and c/d
One of the many fractions between 5/8 and 7/8 is 12/16 = 3/4

6/8 or 3/4 is correct.
there are an infinite number of answers.
13/16 is one, as is 11/16
or 51234/80000 if you want an answer that no one else will use
