## Dividing 1 3/4 Cups of Water by 2

This is a simple division problem, but working with fractions can sometimes be tricky. Here's how to solve it:

**1. Convert the mixed number to an improper fraction:**

- Multiply the whole number (1) by the denominator of the fraction (4): 1 * 4 = 4
- Add the numerator (3): 4 + 3 = 7
- Keep the same denominator (4): 1 3/4 = 7/4

**2. Divide the improper fraction by 2:**

- Dividing by 2 is the same as multiplying by 1/2.
- (7/4) * (1/2) = 7/8

**3. Convert the improper fraction back to a mixed number (optional):**

- Divide the numerator (7) by the denominator (8): 7 ÷ 8 = 0 with a remainder of 7
- The quotient (0) becomes the whole number. The remainder (7) becomes the numerator, and the denominator (8) stays the same.

**Therefore, 1 3/4 cups of water divided by 2 is equal to 7/8 of a cup, or 0 7/8 cups.**
