3/8  + 3/4

Change to similar fractions, LCD = 8

        3/8 + 6/8 = 9/8

Divide 9/8 by 2:
  
        9/8 ÷ 2 = 9/8 × 1/2  (In dividing fraction by fraction, multiply
                                        the dividend by the reciprocal of its
                                        divisor)
        9/8 x 1/2 = 9/16

ANSWER:  The midway between 3/8 and 3/4 is 9/16.

To illustrate:

Change 3/8, 3/4, and 9/16 to similar fractions, with LCD = 16:
3/8 = 6/16;     3/4 = 12/16;    9/16 = 9/16

6/16,  7/16,  8/16,  9/16,  10/16,  11/16,  12/16
