Every two numbers have a midway point, even 1 and 2 have a midpoint of 1 ½ between them. But what do you do when your two numbers are *already fractions*? That is exactly the challenge presented in this week’s word problem. Can you gather your fraction skills and solve the problem? Take a look below, and then check your solution against ours.

**Question:** What number is exactly between one-seventh and two-sevenths?

**Solution:** There aren’t any whole sevenths between one-seventh and two-seventh, so let’s turn them into fourteenths: 1/7 = 2/14, and 2/7 = 4/14. So, since 3 is exactly between 2 and 4, three-fourteenths must be the number that is exactly between one-seventh and two-sevenths.
