    9/8  - 5/8   = 4/8   = 1/2 mile

    Travels 1/2 mile more on second day.

    Find the difference between 5/8 and 1 1/8

    Convert 1 1/8 into an improper fraction

    1 1/8 = 9/8

    9/8 - 5/8 = 4/8 = 1/2 mile

    4/8 of a mile or 1/2 mile.

    5/8 = 5/8

    1 1/8 = 9/8

    9 - 5 = 4 and 4/8 can be reduced to 1/2. 

    You could say he travelled either 4/8 or 1/2 of a mile farther on the second day.

    1 1/8 = 8/8 + 1/8 = 9/8 mile

    9/8 - 5/8 = 4/8 mile

    This is also 1/2 mile when reduced.

    Note: when asked in fractions, usually best to answer with fractions.

    2/8

    1/4 mile
