I know it's hard to tell when you just look at the fractions 2/5 and 3/8 . To make it easier to compare them, I'll change both of them to a form that's easier to see. -- If you have 2 fifths of something, then you have 40% of it. -- If I have 3 eighths of it, then I have 37.5% of it. -- 40 is more than 37.5, so it's easy to see that you have a little bit more of it than I have, and 2/5 is bigger than 3/8 .

6

2/8 x 3/5 = 6/40 = 3/20

In order from largest to smallest... 3/5 - 1/2 - 3/8

if and only if the quantity is the same then 2/3 is the bigger. ie 15 2/3 is 10 where 3/5 is 9

3/5 is the same as 60%. 2/3 is the same as 66%. Therefore 2/3 is bigger than 3/5

four and four fifths

2 is bigger, as it is a whole number. 3/8th is only a part of a whole number.

3/5. 3/5=60/100. 2/8=25. :D

three fifths because if you simplify 2/10 it would be 1/5 so 3/5 is bigger.

1/4=2/8 therefore 3/8 is bigger

(3/8) is 12.5% bigger than (2/6).

3/6 is bigger than 2/8 because 1/2 is bigger than 1/4

4/5 of 975 is bigger than 2/3 of 863

Three ninths is one third, and eighths are bigger than ninths. Three eighths is bigger than three ninths. Therefore three eighths is bigger than one third.

Yes

No it is not. 5 and 3 eighths are bigger by one eighth.

2/5 as it is same as 6/15 multiply both parts by 3

They're equal.

15/40 or 3/8
