1/2 of 1/4 means, The value of 1/4 is half part.That means half of 1/4 is 1/8.The value of 1/8 = 0.125.Then this value is less than 1.

1/4 is 25% of 1. So this number is already below one. If you take half of 1/4, it would reduce is down to 1/8 which is even less than one than what 1/4 was. From small to large it would be 1/8, 1/4, 3/8. 1/2, 5/8, 3/4, 7/8 and then 8/8 which is equal to 1.
