1/16 is half of 1/8 ^Lesson : To find Half of a fraction, Double the bottom (second) number. Examples  Half of 3/4 is 3/8, Half of 3/8 is 3/16, Half of 1/2 is 1/4, 1/16 + 1/16 =1/8, so 1/8 = 2/16 < See how both numbers are doubled. So, it takes two 1/16 cups to equal one 1/8 cup So, if the bird feeder holds three 1/8 cups, (1/8 + 1/8 + 1/8 = 3/8) that means 2/16 + 2/16 + 2/16. Or 6/16. So, the feeder holds six 1/16 cup scoops. This is about "converting" fractions. In this case, that means changing the eighths to sixteenths so you can add them.
